Since vScope keeps track of any historical changes in your IT environment, the disk usage of the vScope installation will increase along with the longer you run vScope. Sometimes, you might want to free disk space if your vScope installation grows too large. However, you cannot just clear data since it contains critical information related to backup
Here are two ways to safely clear disk space for vScope:
Before we start: Consider increasing disk size
vScope’s database is very resource-efficient and will not grow at a high rate. Before clearing disk space, you should consider just increasing the disk size. Eg. 20 GBytes.
1. Reset vScope’s database model
You can reset your entire vScope model under Settings > Database & Backup.
Important: This cannot be undone!
2. Lower the time frame for history
By default, vScope saves up to five years of history before starting erasing historical data. Five years of historical information requires more disk. Therefore, to save disk space you can lower the time frame by which vScope stores history, eg. three or two years. This has to be done by with the guidance of our technicians so if needed please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
