Hi Diny,


Hope you are doing good.


You can use pg_archivecleanup to resolve this issue. pg_archivecleanup is designed to be used as an archive_cleanup_command to clean up WAL file archives when running as a standby server. You can configure this in the recovery.conf file.

Please refer the below link for more information regarding this:
