Cleanup not cleaning up.
« on: May 11, 2017, 05:24:37 AM »
Clean-up finds cc-edges and gc-edges log files, I believe these are created by browsers, which can be large....10 to 100mb. However, it seems unable to delete them. When you hit delete cleanup reports 0mb cleared and indeed the files remain intact

Likely the files are still in use.

Thanks for the reply. I had found the same article but unfortunately it was more of an explanation with how create said files rather than eraseing them or at least closing them in preparation for deletion.
Still have no idea how to.
