Symptoms

-- Problem Statement:

The ContentDB / CMSDK tablespace containing the xxx.ODMM_NONINDEXEDSTORE table is full, and everything stopped.

Reviewing the xxx.ODMM_NONINDEXEDSTORE table,  it seems to contain NUMEROUS old files which we do not seem to be able to see in ifsbrowser or ifsshell ?

Proposing to truncate this table,  but we are concerned because the first 140 odd rows contain Blobs containing text such as
/* Copyright (c) 2002, 2004 Oracle. All rights reserved.*/
in the rows which could break ContentDB / CMSDK if we deleted the rows ?

Question: Can we just delete the rows from the xxx.ODMM_NONINDEXEDSTORE table which have our data in them ?

The table has about 30000 rows in it, and most of these are our old files ?
