Delete files attached to other deleted objects

When Activity or other entities with file attachments are deleted, the attached files become 'orphaned' in the database or external files storage.  This is not ideal.

Ideally, orphaned files would be deleted at the time of entity deletion, or a set number of days after.

Another idea would be to mark the files as orphaned, and purge them out with the 'Optimize Database' button in 'Tenants'

    The Optimize Database feature by definition should be doing this but I just tested this by creating an email with attachment and deleting it and it does not actually remove the file or anything from DB.
