Cleanup HoldingArea RRS feed

  • Question

  • My live mesh "news" section doesn't show any conflicts (that's the place they should show up right?) but still my HoldingArea occupies 1GB of my precious SSD space. Can I manually remove these files?

  • I think so, though I can't tell you absolutely. What I'd do is copy the folder to another location before deleting the contents to see if any issues arise. If not, then delete the copy. The files left in the \HoldingArea folder are likely to be those that were in conflict previously. I have 3 copies of the same file in mine on this PC, but I already resolved the conflicts each time that they occurred for this file. My guess is that you are facing the same situation - previous resolved conflicts.
