purgeInstanceData command not deleting the old files

I have executed below purge command-

wls:/base_domain/serverConfig/> purgeInstanceData("01-03-2018 00:00:00:00", "03-04-2019 00:00:00:00",
testMode="false", status="*", runInSync="true", runPayloadPurge="true")
Total no. of purged instances: 0.
Total no. of purgeable payloads: 0.
Nothing has been purged as there is no purgeable records

As the result shows, nothing has been purged but there are lots of records and files in database and filesystem respectively. I want to clean up the database file system.
