C:\Program Files\Common Files\Symantec Shared\VirusDefs excessive size
I know that this has been discussed ad nauseam, but I can't seem to solve my issue. My C:\Program Files\Common Files\Symantec Shared\VirusDefs folder has consumed 18.7 GB of the 30 GB HDD on my server. None of the folders are in the tmp* or *tmp format. Almost all of them are in the numeric format of YYYYMMDD.###.
Unfortunately, we're still running Symantec Client Security v9.0.1 and this server is acting as a parent. I'm in the middle of upgrading hardware and software across the board and have upgraded a number of systems to Endpoint Protection 11.0, but I need to keep this old system limping along for a while if possible.
At this point, these Virus Defs have almost filled the disk on this server. The only other thing running is the operating system itself. Is there any way for me to purge some of them to free up some disk space?
