Knowledgebase: Tips and tricks
No archive previews, yet index folder is huge!

Customer reported he was no longer creating previews during archiving and wanted to see if any existing previews could be deleted. We referred the customer to the following KB article:

http://portal.archiware.com/support/index.php?/Knowledgebase/Article/View/159/0/how-to-delete-previews

However, even after the previews had been deleted, the 'index' folder (/usr/local/aw/conf/index) was still 9GB in size. Further investigation revealed a large number of .mov files in a folder called 'online' (/usr/local/aw/conf/index/online).

That folder was used several versions ago to cache previews of files accessed during 'online' browsing of a client's file system. This feature is no longer being used. Any files inside '/usr/local/aw/conf/index/online' can therefore be deleted.

In this particular case, it reduced the overall size of the index folder from 9GB to 3GB.
