WAFS Vault is filling up with large numbers of previous versions of files

THE INFORMATION IN THIS ARTICLE APPLIES TO:

  • WAFS version 3.6.2 and later

SYMPTOM

Some applications save numerous versions (i.e., more than 32) of previous versions of files (e.g., Microsoft Outlook .pst files, AutoDesk Revit Files, Automatic ACL Replication files), causing the Vault to fill up very quickly.

RESOLUTION

In WAFS version 3.6.2, you can enable a cleanup algorithm to automatically remove the previous versions using the "enbSpecialPass" Windows Registry key. Set the key to 1 to enable the cleanup algorithm or 0 to disable it.

To add the key and enable the cleanup algorithm

  1. Copy the text below for your operating system into a text file, then save it with a .reg extension:

    1. On 32-bit systems:

      Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

      [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Availl\Availl Server\Settings]

      "enbSpecialPass"=dword:00000001

      On 64-bit systems:

      Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

      [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Wow6432Node\Availl\Availl Server\Settings]

      "enbSpecialPass"=dword:00000001

  2. Double-click the .reg file to write the key to the Windows Registry and follow the prompts.
