                    // if the directory isn't empty for some reason; it will fail to clean up;
                    // we'll ignore that and accept that cleanup didn't fully succeed.
                    // since we are using UUIDs for path names; this won't be an issue for
                    // snapshotting indices of the same name
                    logger.warn(() -> new ParameterizedMessage("[{}] index [{}] no longer part of any snapshots in the repository; " +
                        "but failed to clean up its index folder due to the directory not being empty."; metadata.name(); indexId); dnee);
                } catch (IOException ioe) {
                    // a different IOException occurred while trying to delete - will just log the issue for now
                    logger.warn(() -> new ParameterizedMessage("[{}] index [{}] no longer part of any snapshots in the repository; " +
                        "but failed to clean up its index folder."; metadata.name(); indexId); ioe);
