wrdata folder

Anyone know if the wrdata folder can be cleaned out or deleted? It grows to an enormous size over time.

Re: wrdata folder

Open WSA > System Tools > Reports > Clear Log.

Re: wrdata folder

Hi snake,

 

Sorry ProTruckDriver that will not decrease the info in that folder the only thing that you can do is uninstall WSA reboot and install again because if you just delete the files it could cause issues with WSA!

Re: wrdata folder

Hi Snake,

 

How big is the folder? You may want to consider opening a ticket to see if you have a lot of Undetermined files. Undetermined files are journaled by WSA to allow for rollback in the event they are found to be malicious. If you open a ticket, using Help and Support in WSA, your logs are autoloaded with your ticket and support can begin making determinations about any unknown software. Assuming that is the issue that is.  :-)

Misunderstood the question. I thought snake was talking about just clearing the logs of WSA. Sorry. :smileyembarrassed:
