The trace files are not getting deleted even after enabling the bindview_delete_trace_files job on the sql server.


Just enabling the job will not run that job. One has to either run the job manually by using RMB ( Right mouse button ) action on the job or schedule for the job.


To schedule the job, do as follows:

  • Right click mouse and select ‘Properties’ on the job.
  • Select ‘Schedules’ page on the properties dialog and click on ‘New’ button.
  • Create schedule similar to ‘BindView_Trace_Data_Cleanup_Job’
