I have some arcgis cache layer on arcgis server. After delete service from arcgis manager i'm expect that folder auto delete from directories arcgiscache, but it doesn't. In result i don't have service, but have arcgiscache. I used rest clear cache but it not help. So how delere arcgiscache and service from argis server correctly?


There are tools in ArcGIS Desktop to handle that. On Esri's ArcGIS Server documentation page Delete a Service it says:

If you delete a cached service, the cache tiles, tiling scheme, and folder structure are retained on disk. If you want to delete the cache completely, use the Delete Map Server Cache tool. If you want to delete the tiles but leave the cache folder structure and tiling scheme, use the Manage Map Server Cache Tiles tool and set Update Mode to Delete_Tiles.

  • Yes, i saw it. But after this article support.esri.com/en/technical-article/000013238 i don't understand what i should do. – GRM Jul 8 '20 at 16:14
  • @GRM What version of ArcGIS Server are you running? That tech article is old (for 10.1-10.4) and talks about manually deleting the cache. You now have tools (as per my answer) that will delete for you. What are you stuck with? – Midavalo Jul 8 '20 at 16:27
