How to identify and delete swift containers?

Hi everyone,

I'm using openstack swift for a while now and i'm really satisfied. I have an application that uses this type of storage but i've came to across to a scenario that i can't find a solution. If i delete something from the Application GUI it's not deleted from the Swift Storage. And i don't have information based on a name or something because everything i get from running swift stat /list commands are names like that

openstack.0000001d openstack.00000029 .. .

under one big openstack container and i dont know which of this containers are the ones that i deleted from the Application. Is there a way to identify the containers that have no connection to the app ?

Thanks in advance
