When I look at my results, I see 17 marked as ERROR, with all of them from 2015 or before.

Is it worthwhile keeping such old workunits in your database?

Or is avoiding the effort of removing them worth more than the storage space you would recover?

I've got some 2 historical Error units dating back to 2013 plus some others that are more recent including 2015, 2016 and 2018!!!

They do no harm. The storage taken is trivial and removal may cause unforeseen inconsistencies.
