Seafile GC vs System Trash [library_trash]

Hello,

I am a little confused in

conf/seafile.conf

I can set

[library_trash]
# How often trashed libraries are scanned for removal, default 1 day.
scan_days = xx

# How many days to keep trashed libraries, default 30 days.
expire_days = xx

see Manaual

And there is SeafileGC
see Manual

Is SeafileGC obsolet as for me scan_days sounds like Seafile is cleaning up unused blocks

or

is Seafile just checking the trash every day for files in trash older than 30 days and then “removes” them but do not clean the unused blocks and therefor I still have to run SeafileGC?

Thanks

You still have to run the garbage collector.
