DPM 2016 - cleaning up Azure scratch & temp files RRS feed

  • Question

  • Is there is list of files that can be safely cleaned-up from the C:\Program Files\Microsoft Azure Recovery Services Agent\Scratch and \Temp folders?  We see a lot of old DiskCache*, *.tmp, *.errlog, *.Crash, and *.CrashDetect files.

    Thanks

    You safely delete any .crash files located under C:\Program Files\Microsoft Azure Recovery Services Agent\Temp - however no other files should be deleted.

    If you need to MOVE the scratch folder, the steps are documented below.

    How do I change the cache location for the MARS agent?
