 hi wordpress team!

 I had a very strange problem yesterday that I did not even think about ...

 As you know, after uploading images in WordPress, WordPress automatically
 creates several different sizes of it. For example, I uploaded over 200
 product images to WooCommerce ... (on an unofficial site) After a long
 time, yesterday I decided to remove all products and their photos from
 within the WordPress media section And I did. **But after looking at the
 hosts and the uploads folder, I was surprised to see that all the images
 still remained in the upload folder.** In fact, in addition to the image
 uploaded in WordPress (WooCommerce products), there were 4 different sizes
 of each image in the upload folder.
 I was really surprised by this ...
 I tested this on several different websites and even my colleagues
 confirmed it. Please address this issue if possible. It is very, very
 important. thank you!
