Hi Mjahtetn,

Do you mean the SEP clients or the SEPM Manager (server component)?  I will assume you mean the SEPM.  These articles may help:

Disk Space Management procedures for the Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager (http://www.symantec.com/docs/TECH96214)

(There are several good links from that KB....)

Best Practices for configuring the number of content revisions to keep in Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager (http://www.symantec.com/docs/TECH92225)

Please let the forum community know if this helps!  If not, please provide more details.

Thanks and best regards,

Mick

With thanks and best regards,

Mick
