Dan when these files are whitelisted are they deleted automatically from my WRdata folder?

No but after a Scan you can delete the db.numbers.db files.

Hi Daniel
 
I recall that way back one of the Webrooter's explained where to look in the Registry for the association of each db.nnnnnn.db file with file path of the app that it refers to...but I cannot find it any more.
 
I will look again and if I find it I will distribute the information in the PUG.

It's to much work for the average user but once the files are whitelisted and do a scan then one can delete the db.numbers.db files nice and simple untill they get it fixed again with Self Cleaning of old Monitoring Data files.

You are most likely right but personally I do like to try to work out exactly what the .db files relate to before I delete them.

Is it normal to find a db file in WRData folder that isn't in the Scan Log?
I just ran a new scan log and saved it to the Desktop. Then I search for a large DB file that was residing in the WRData folder, in this log but found nothing?

Yes once they are whitelisted!

Hi SG,
 
I just verified that it will work.  I checked my WRDATA directory and it had no numbered files.  I deliberately ran an install  file that I knew it would pick up and sure enough when I looked in WRDATA there were two new numbered files.  I saved a scan log and looking toward the bottom of the file, it had both files identified by name and path.
 
So I would guess as has been said already, if they have been whitelisted it will not pick them up to be monitored.
 
Best regards,
Dave
 
Edit: Tip: only use the number when searching the scan log, not the db in front or the extension.

Daniel, Thanks for the info...I'll delete it.
DJ...are you saying you normally have no numbered db files? I don't think I've ever had none in my WRData folder.

SG,
I do have them occasionally, but usually it is only when I install utility type apps that access or otherwise impact the OS, hard drive, and etc.  I can just about tell you when I am going to have them show up and it is almost always when I install one of these utilities.  Other than that, my WRDATA directory is usually pretty clean and consistently has the same number of files.

I have 2.5GB now.
