Hi Marc,

MMSCDATA probably is the bulk of the data.

By default messages are purged automatically after 30 days. To change this value, the following setting can be applied under the [MMSC] section of MMSC.INI:

DataRetainDays=###, where ### is the number of days for which MMS messages should be retained.

To automatically delete messages after they are retrieved, there is the following setting under the [MMSC] header in MMSC.INI:

ExpireDynamicLinks=##, where ## is the number of minutes after the link is first accessed before it should be automatically deleted.

To account for some retry situations, I would be hesitant setting this too low. Start with DataRetainDays...and if memory serves me correctly, the cleanup is performed hourly, so it may take an hour to take effect.

Additionally, there are settings for specifying how many days to retain the log files for ... the following setting is available under the [MMSC] section of MMSC.INI, and under the [SMSGW] section of SMSGW.INI:

LogRetainDays=###, where ### is the number of days for which log files should be retained.

Hi Des
thx for your advice ,
now you know that your soft can run properly even if the path take 60 Gb and have about 1.3 millions of files into it and of course not the least running on windows server 2003 ^^
