My DFM installation is constantly getting slower and slower so I wanted to run the dfmpurge utility to clean the database.
Unfortunately whenever I run it in purge mode it tells me that not all DFM services are stopped even if I have stopped them. (screenshot)
I have the version dfmpurge_dfm-5.1x_windows_64.zip of the tool which is the correct one.
Here are the stats of the server:
The server is vmware virtual machine and the E: drive hosting the DFM installation and database is an iSCSI lun so I have also snapdrive installed.
Does anyone have an idea how to get the dfmpurge tool working?

Looking at your screenshots everything looks fine. Can you see if any dfm services are running using task manager and kill them if any ?
Let me download the 5.1 64bit windows version and see if there is any problem with the binary.
