Desktop Central requires a certain amount of free disk space to function effectively. Ideally you should have atleast 5 GB of free disk space in the drive, in which you install the Desktop Central server. You should check the size of your folders periodically. When the size exceeds the limit, you should delete unwanted files, as lack of space could affect the creation of logs and application of patches and service packs.
This document gives you information about which files can be deleted.
Note: Ensure that you stop the Desktop Central server before deleting anything. It is recommended that you keep the last two backup files in each of the folders mentioned below.
Folder path: DesktopCentral_Server>\bin\. Delete the following files:
- Zipped log files: This comprises files that were sent to the support team. The name of the file is DesktopCentral_Logs.zip
- Heap profiler (Hprof) files: Hprof files are created when the disk space is low. The name of the file has the extension .hprof. For example, java_pid9448.hprof.
- Null folders: Folders with the name null
Folder path: <DesktopCentral_Server>\PatchBackup\. Delete the following folders with names that include the following:
- <BuildNumber-TimeStamp>. For example, <70137-Feb-22-2011-15-10>. These folders are created when desktopcentral server is upgraded.
- Old build numbers
Folder path: <DesktopCentral_Server>\mysql\temp. Delete all the files in this folder.
You will now have more space in the drive where the Desktop Central server is installed.
