Server Staging - Old Files

hello, 

 

I'm beginning a clean up process on our server and noticed there are a ton of old files sitting out in \ProgramData\Alteryx\Service\Staging\

 

going all the way back a few years. 

 

Is it safe to delete old files here without impacting performance of the engine/gallery? 

 

Thanks,

 

Mike

If you actually set your persistence settings in the server configuration it will handle this for you 🙂 I normally wouldn't delete anything, you could zip up everything over say a year and offload it somewhere if you have to but again best route is to set your persistence settings.

If this solves your issue please make sure to mark solved so that others in the community can get to this 🙂 

 

Thanks
