Files building up in \temp\gthrsvc RRS feed

  • Question




    Windows 2003 server SP2


    Exchange 2003 SP2


    I have a problem with files from the exchange indexing service building up in the \temp\gthrsvc folder. I understand the Micrsoft search sevice writes temporary files to this directory as it runs indexing of the exchange data store but the files should be deleted immediately. I getting several GBs of pdf files building up through the day which aren't deleted until the indexing service restarts every morning as scheduled. I beleive the pdf files are coming from one email attatchment which I've tried to remove from the server but keep coming up.


    I've redirected the temp folder so that it won't fill up the system drive but still really need to get this resolved. I understand there was a hotfix for exchange 2000 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/812387/en-us) which adressed a similar issue but cannot find an equivalent fix for exchange 2003.


    I'd really appreciate any help.
