Settings folder getting to large

Post by vanbeek » Mon Mar 11, 2013 9:39 am

I am using backup4all now for about 2 years with great satisfaction, it has saved me on several occasions.

But lately i have noticed the settings folder is getting out of hand. it is now 45GB large, thats disk space i dont have to spare.
it contains all kinds of folders like BUK0OMWW762, C5CV7BC01065 (over 6000 in total) these look like tempory folder structure.

Can i safely remove all these folders or will that give me any problems in the future?

Hi,

You can delete those files with no problem for Backup4all as it did not create them.

I am sure backup4all is creating those folders!
in these folders there are files named like Backup_full.bkc

These look like temporary files, of the tape indexes. but they are in the settings folder instead of the temporary folder.

I will delete those. and see what happens.
