Attachments Question

I just want to make sure I understand this correctly..

The "File Attachment Options" only take affect if I go through the "maintain" step, correct ?

Looking at the settings, there is no reason why images and avatars should ever be removed unless I do the "maintain" step, correct ?



The reason I ask, is that when I view "browse files" it shows 658 pages of attachments, but there are several hundred of those pages that are blank.

The forum for what ever reason has lost a lot of images over time. I am not completely sure why, and just want to make sure that ther is not some kind of automated setting that is deleting attachments after a specific set period of time and for some reason the forum is loosing attachments.

Thanks.... 

Can you give me a brief description of what the "maintain" link does ?  Does it just remove attachments older than 25 days, and those larger than 100 kb ?

It just checks for errors with attachnents
Example
The follow errors were found during maintenance. Check the box next to the errors you wish to fix and hit continue.
15 attachments/avatars have an entry but no longer exist on disk
1 avatars no longer have a member associated with them

Does the avatars without a member associated with them issue happen often btw? I've noticed it a few times now.
