Clear log files - Central Endpoint Protection

Hi all,

we are using Central Endpoint Protection on our clients.
In the past days we did some testing and tried to download blocked files and content like Eicar testvirus, access blocked websites etc.
Everything worked as expected and the threats we detected. However, we now want to clear the log files on the client but we didn’t find a way to do that. Neither on the client itself nor in central.
Could someone help?

Thanks in advance!


  • Hello Aktuator,

    [Central is perhaps the better forum]

    clear the log files
    I'm not sure I understand what exactly you want. The logs on the client are "just" logs. Their contents have no operational importance, i.e. they don't determine a machine's health status. Nor do they affect the Alerts, Events, and Reports in Central Admin.


  • At the endpoint, if you wish to clear the list of Events, you could remove/rename the C:\ProgramData\Sophos\Health\Event Store\Database\event,db file having stopped the Sophos Health Service.  For Central you will have to wait until the 90 day Window.

    Excellent! It was exactly what I was looking for. Worked like a charm.
    Thank you very much Jak! :-)
