SnapDrive Snpdrvdbg0** files

GRAEMEOGDEN

Is it safe to delete the Snpdrvdbg000-099 files in C:\Program Files\NetApp\SnapDrive ? Also lots named VDISKAPI000 etc.

They are around 20 Mb each so can take up quite a lot of space.

Thanks,

Graeme

Unless you have an ongoing support case you can safely delete them.  SnapDrive has debug logging enabled by default.  See https://kb.netapp.com/support/index?page=content&id=1010681&actp=search&viewlocale=en_US&searchid=133467715016.

Thanks Spence.

After looking at the KB and digging around further in the registry, it looks like you can limit the number of log files created. Default is 100 x 20Mb (which is actually 200 x 20 Mb as there are .log and .dat files!)

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\SWSvc\Parameters\VMwareEsx

Adjust the DbgLogFiles DWORD as necessary.
