Updating file references in assets via the CM API
I need to perform a bulk change to many assets converting to JPG from PNGs due to some changing requirements on my end. It seems straight forward to just upload a new binary, and upsert the new file_reference on the asset, but I wanted to check:
- What happens to orphaned binaries? Do they eventually get cleaned up, do they contribute against quotas? Is there any way for me to delete them?
- Are there performance concerns if a large number is relinked like this? If so, approximately what would be the scale where I would see issues?
