One person s definition of too oldMessage 1 of 67 , Feb 15, 2013View SourceI agree with Adam which is why I don't delete them. I've had auto-deleter's do things before that I wish they hadn't. One person's definition of "too old" can be dramatically different than another person's. And it gets even worse when the computer's date gets scrogged (yes, we had a production system one time whose corporate-supplied time server leaped a decade ahead, our data purgers noticed and deleted ALL data from their system... ugly).
The .LOG files do rotate and then delete, so they're not (as much of) an issue provided that you restart the client every now and then. I am considering an auto-rotate of *.LOGs every calendar day to account for those instances that rarely restart (like my own WebDT366-based Igate).
Deleteing the old dated .EXE and .XMLs will be left as an exercise to the user for the foreseeable future.

I've had to go back to old files before, especially with the Dev version.
Auto delete might be a little premature unless it's for the general release.
Just my opinion

A new release??? I thought the about button was broke. :) hi hi
Anyway. What is the possibility of of "old" files being auto deleted? Like old EXE and log files. I looked in my Aprsisce directory and couldn't believe all the old EXE files, and how big the log files were. I very rarely check for that stuff, and sure others do the same. Just a little suggestion.
