Automatic deleting old avatar & cover images

To save site owners space BuddyPress should delete the old image (of avatar or cover) once a new one is uploaded.
That way site owners that have a big mass of users can save storage space and money.

Hi @shay1383!

Storage is relatively cheap nowadays. The problem is for the very oldest BuddyPress sites, we have no way of knowing what images BuddyPress added to a site. There is a chance some custom code or plugin wrote something to the same storage folders that we use, and if we just deleted everything, then we'd quite possibly destroy unrelated data.

If/when the avatar image implementation is overhauled, we could probably support this for new sites.
