Can I (and how can I) remove old NG snapshots
« on: January 17, 2018, 05:07:55 PM »
I'm running Avast 17.9.2322 on Windows and I'm trying to free up some disk space.

I see some old Avast files from Sep 2015 in the 'C:\Users\All Users\AVAST Software\Avast\ng' directory.  Notably there are some large 'snapshot...' files there.

Nothing in that directory appears to have been created after Sep 2015.

1) Can I remove that old 'NG' directory (is it still used)?

2) Is there a preferred method or just whack the directory?

Thanks!

Best you perform a clean reinstall.

That mostly worked.  Removing Avast definitely removed the old NG snapshots but left from log files around.  Those were pretty easy to remove.

I then re-installed and reconfigured as I had before.

Thanks!
