I noticed some strange messages about autoexpire on my backend earlier this
week. After investigating I found that the nfs link to my recordings
diretory on the master server was gone. The backend must have seen this as
a freespace violation and tried to autoexpire recordings. I don't know, but
I'd bet if this were the case the recordings are just gone from the
database but still on the disk. I don't know because I have nothing set to
allow for autoexpire so my slave backend was just throwing messages about
not finding things to autoexpire. (I had a bad experinece with autoexpire a
while ago and turned it off everywhere).
Hope that helps.
