  • Agent Disk Footprint? CVMedia and Hotfix
    Posted: 04-18-2019, 6:21 AM

    Hi there,


    I justt did a "AppAware" backup for some VMs, and can see that the agent took almost 4GB of disk space on each machine. This seems to me quite a lot just to do backups...

    Most of the space usage is for the Hotfix and CVMedia directories.

    Is there a way to decrease this size and/or use remote storage for these directories?

    What service pack are you on? Starting service pack 14, the space required for CVUpdates and CVMedia should be significantly less with the hotfix packs. We are also reviewing if we an further optimize the space with other folders.
