The data include:

  • Old service tmp dirs, which werf creates during every build, publish, deploy and other commands.
  • Local cache:
    • Remote git clones cache.
    • Git worktree cache.
  • Shared context:
    • Mounts which persists between several builds (mounts from build_dir).

WARNING: Do not run this command during any other werf command is working on the host machine. This command is supposed to be run manually.
