how can I delete orphaned documents?

I have deleted a branch of content and due to a defect in the deletion process I have many orphaned documents. CMIS queries are returning the orphan and causing issues. Is there a tool or can someone provide some steps to delete them apart from dropping and recreating the DB.

Hi cstettler

As far as I know it is possible to delete orphaned documents: A quote from the documentation:

“The garbage collection is done by an explicit administration step: Admin Center > System Information > Repository binaries > Mark orphaned binaries after having clicked the Delete orphaned binaries check box. You can also just click Mark orphaned binaries without the check box to gather statistics about what is going to be deleted without doing the actual delete.”
