Attachments are not deleted during trash

I have just binned some entries which have an accumulated 500mb of file attachments.
The entries are gone but the attachments still remain in the uploads folder. Are these not meant to delete automatically?

Hi John. If the entries were sent to the Trash bin only, the attachments are not removed from the server. Once they are permanently deleted, the uploads are deleted. If that is not happening on your site, please open a support ticket here:

I have logged a support ticket as I did delete these permanently but the uploads folder still has all the attachments. I can’t manually delete them as I deliberately kept some entries but I have no way of knowing which attachments relate to the deleted entries.
