Huge DEUtil Log Files RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have the latest updates, PP2 on my WHS machine.  Ever since I replaced the system drive the DEUtil log files have been growing to a huge size, and there are many of them so that about once a week the SYS drive is filled.  The logs look like the following repeated over and over for every file stored on the server in the shares:

    That specific folder {1618D......} is where orphaned shadow files are stored.  Typically that happens when you had a hard drive fail (as you did) when running RTM (before Power Pack 1).  As long as you have that data elsewhere on the server, you can delete everything in the {1618D...} folder.  (I would suggest you randomly try some of those files from your client first to make sure they work.)  See the Drive Extender Technical Brief for details on how to logon to the server and view the orphaned shadow files.

  • Thank you, that worked perfectly.  I tried accessing the files in the shadow copy directory and they all came up with an Invalid Handle error.  After deleting all the files in that directory and running the vssadmin command, another issue cleared itself up that I was going to ask about.  That being that all my files were being counted as System instead of Shared.  Running vssadmin fixed that, now the pie chart is accurate again.
