The files seem to be related to the auto-update service. Is there way to keep these files from accumulating?
Hi Brian -
Where do you say these files are accumulating on these machines? Are these in %programdata%\Sophos\AutoUpdate ?
In reply to DianneY:
No, they are in SysWOW64.
In reply to Brian Jones2:
Hello Brian Jones2
These files are associated with parts of the updating process and are expected to be in that location. Removing these files are not recommended.
OK, when will they go away? There are over 3,000 now - taking up space...
Hi Brian Jones2
There will be DAT as well as XML files, which contain signatures and other information that Sophos antivirus product use to protect your computer against existing and new potential threats. These files are released regularly and hence we do not recommend to delete these files.
