SME snapinfo directories taking up too much space - can I just manually delete them?

[ Edited ]

Hi,

What is the purpose of all the truncated transactional logs kept in the snapinfo directory? I understand their purpose is to allow up-to-the-minute restores of backups. 

Our path is : Z:\sme_snapinfo\EXCH__EXCHANGE1\SG__Exchange1

These directories in the snapinfo directory are taking up too much space in our system.

We have 60 days of backups that I've taken all with up-to-the-minute option checked off.

If I now only want up-to-the-minute restore capibility for the last 15 days and point-in-time (instead of up-to-the-minute) restores for the 45 days after that, can I simply delete these older than 15 day snapinfo directories within Windows Exploer?

Thanks,

Dean
