avast 4 uses 1.69GB
« on: September 06, 2003, 06:08:50 AM »
In the folder C:\WINDOWS\Temp\_avast_, there are 1.69GB of files. I have the feeling they are from the VRDB, but because of the way I set my partitions, the C: is only 3GB in size. With Windows and Office installed, this means I don't have that much spare space.

I have disabled the VRDB generation (previously it was enabled), but I want to know if I can safely delete all those files. I only have 20MB of free space on my C: now, and I am not going to change my partition sizes.

I have also not found any documentation about deleting files made by the VRDB, nor have I found any utilities included with avast!.

Please help me.

Sounds like temp files that you can delete.  It's in the windows temp folder right?  I have one file in that folder.  It's named unp41 and it's 283k.
The wind in the wires made a tattletale sound
And a wave broke over the railing
And every man knew, as the Captain did, too,
T'was the witch of November come stealing.

This folder has nothing to do with VRDB. avast! puts there temporary files when scanning inside of archives or e-mail attachments. So, you can safely delete the files.
(Of course, avast! should have deleted the files...)
