DISCUSSION

In WAFS v4.3 and later, you can schedule metadata cleanup to run at a specific time (preferably outside of business hours) with the registry key described below.

To schedule cleanup, create the following key

32-bit:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Availl\AvailClient\Settings

64-bit:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Availl\AvailClient\Settings

DWORD: MetadataCleanupTimer

Configured in milliseconds: 3,600,000 milliseconds = 1 hour. Therefore, 3600000 = 1 AM

0 (or undefined) = midnight

3600000 = 1 AM

7200000 = 2 AM

108000000 = 3 AM, and so on

With logging set to TRACE for category Dev, you should see the following text in the log when the cleanup occurs:
