nix profile wipe-history - delete non-current versions of a profile


nix profile wipe-history [option…]


Delete all versions of the default profile older than 100 days:

# nix profile wipe-history --profile /tmp/profile --older-than 100d
removing profile version 515
removing profile version 514


This command deletes non-current versions of a profile, making it impossible to roll back to these versions. By default, all non-current versions are deleted. With --older-than Nd, all non-current versions older than N days are deleted.
