The C$ is running low on disk space on our Netwrix AD Manage server. I have discovered that the AD Changes folder in c:\programdata\netwrix\management console\data has an identical duplicate folder in c:\users\all users\netwrix\management console\data. If I could delete one of these folders it would free 15GB of space. Is there a configuration issue here? Is there anything I can do to resolve this? Thanks in advance - Rob

The audit archive location should be the only place change data is written.  Whatever location is specified in the configuration you should keep and delete the other one.  You can also point this location at another drive (not mapped).

Thanks Jeff - we will keep programdata and deleting allUsers. The 2 x locations are identical down to the byte which suggests there are two processes writing simultaneously which concerns me slightly!

Er - just realised that 'AllUsers' is just a pointer to 'ProgramData', so the tool I was using was displaying the information incorrectly - sorry!
