How to delete remaining docker digest in Images when tag are already removed ?


I have create a docker private repository in Images.

I push multiple docker images and tag them with versions number.

Yesterday, I try to clean the repository by removing all the old versions of the image (old tags).

But I don’t check the “Remove digest option” in the popup. So it only removed the tag and not the associated digest.

Now, I don’t have the tags listed anymore but I still have the digests using space and I can’t delete them easily from UI. How could I fix that ?
