Search Head Cluster - default.old directories

Builder

Everytime I change something and deploy an app change to the SH cluster, I'm left with default.old.<date> folders that are being replicated to the indexers and thus polluting disk space.

Any way to limit the retention on these dir's?

You mean that the default.old. folders are being replicated to the search heads not to the indexers

I guess, the question is: is it safe/when is it safe to prune the older directories? are they only some sort of "backups" or are they used actively during replication for comparison purposes?

Is there a setting i splunk to limit how many generations of these to keep?
Or a setting for how old backup directories to keep?
