[MERGED] Temp folder stuffed full of Veeam data?

Post by azc » Mar 23, 2016 3:07 pm

Was poking around my backup server and discovered this Temp folder full of other folders, all of which appear to contain Veeam data?

C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Local\Temp

All the folder names appear to be a hex string, such as 63608684-a08c-47d7-bf84-edd5469204fa

Inside each folder is a set of files, for example:

GuestIndexData.zip
summary.txt
volume.C.ifd
volume.E.ifd

The contents of the zip appear to match the remaining three files.

Are these folders and files meant to be there? Can they be safely deleted? There is 10 GB of data in almost 2,000 files. Thank you.

Andrew, you can remove older files manually in case you do not need them. What Veeam B&R version do you use?

Hi Foggy, I'm using V9. Some of the folders date back to 2013! Thanks for merging my post, this thread is very helpful.

Then they most likely are from previous versions that didn't remove data properly.

Hi Stephan, not that I'm aware of, so I'd contact technical support for verification.
