The default IndexDeletionPolicy just keeps the last commit only
(KeepOnlyLastCommitDeletionPolicy) .Files belonging to older commits
are removed. If the files are needed longer for replication, they are
leased . The lease is extended 10 secs at a time. Once all the slaves
have copied the lease is never extended and the files will be purged.

In the snapshot based system , unless the snapshots are deleted from
the file system the old files will continue to live on the disk
