This issue has been solved. See solution.

Hi,

Can I actually delete the big files residing in C:\Program Files\Symantec\Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager\data\replication\inbox\BC6BB661A8D97FAF93D9C35239C436C5 directory 

because it seems that it is stuck in the SEPM server.

Thanks

since you have set replication in your environment this directory is visible. the data from other site is copied here through replication process. the data.zip and the extracted folder should keep its timestamp changing (based on replication time).

if there is no replication , then you can delete it.

If you're using replication than you need to leave it. Otherwise, you can delete it.

it will be there , the next replication replaces these files with the latest timestamp.

These files are responsible of having the other site information ( selected during replication, logs, contents, groups, policies etc) to be inserted into the DB.

cool, so can I safely assume that this file will be gone / deleted once it is finished replicating ?

no, it will be there in the folder.

next replication this file will be replaced with another file (same name data.zip) and it gets extracte din the same folder.

The file will be there.

The file stays, it just gets overwritten with new data after each replication. That is if anything changed.
