Capture Destination - Folders Not Deleted
  • I've noticed that when SS automatically deletes files on the capture destination volume, it does not delete the date-named folders it creates. Is there a need or value to leaving these empty folders behind?
  • The way the algorithm works is by generating a list of old files to delete, via a scan of the captured files. SecuritySpy then deletes files from this list gradually as needed, until the list is exhausted, at which point it does another scan. These scans are time consuming, so the generated list is intentionally long in order to avoid frequent scans. Empty folders are only deleted during these scans.

    So, the empty folders will eventually be deleted automatically, but it won't happen right away.
  • Ah, thank you for the explanation. As long as they are deleted in due time, I have no concerns.

Howdy, Stranger!
