Free up space taken by search server

Veeam Logoby KeiichiKun » Mon Aug 28, 2017 7:16 am

Hi all,
I've installed Microsoft Search Server Express on a server different from Veeam machine, but I don't use it too much and indicization takes too much space on Veeam server.
How can I free up space from Veeam server (I've already removed search server from Veeam enterprise manager)?
Thanks

Hi,

You should find files created by the Search server in \VBRCatalog\Journal\[YYYY_MM]\[search-server]\.
You can manually delete files and sub-folders contained in it. Thanks!

Hi, thanks for the reply.
Support (case #02293509) told me that is not so safe delete those files, so they suggest me to take a backup of that folder and wait for some days to see if everything works without problem.
Is that the best practises?
Thanks again!

Sure, It is always right decision to make a backup before deleting anything manually. Thanks!
