Hi folks

Just got a nasty message from windows to say that the disc is full.
Turns out that the Awasu index file is
36.2 Gb,
25.8 on disc
26,803 files.

The files are all around 4Mb, one for each day.

How do I clean that lot out? What settings do i have to change?

Cheers

Are you talking about the files in the Index sub-directory (e.g. C:\Program Files\Awasu\Users\YOUR-NAME\Index)?

There definitely shouldn't be thousands of files. If you want to clean it up, just exit Awasu and delete the files. Search won't be available any more but you can always rebuild the index using the ArchiveMaintenance.exe tool (in the Awasu installation directory).

Yup

There's a pile of .ts, .tii, prx, .frcq, .fnm etc files for every day, about 20 of them.

I'll bale out and delete and see what difference it makes.

How do I stop it from creating all these files? Or do I have to do this every so often. These started building up on July 27.

I deleted the files and my 40Gb disc went from full to under 11GB.

Hoo boy.

Thanks, for a moment there I was facing up to lashing out for another hard drive.

This is weird. These files are not created by date so I think it might just be coincidence that it looks that way.

Just delete the files and keep an eye on it to see if it still happens. You can turn off indexing in the Program Options.

I remember when I used to have a 40 Gb drive. Ah yes, those were the days.

I've got 380 Gb of disk space right now and I'm still running out of space :roll:
