OK to delete all catalog files?

Postby fbdenman » Sat Sep 15, 2007 5:06 am

I just found on a customer's absolutely full C drive about 6GB of *.V01 files at "C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Microsoft\Windows NT\NTBackup\catalogs51".

Since I'm backing up to HDDs, it's not a problem to recreate catalog files from the backup media when I need to do a restore.

So, is there any good reason not to have a script that deletes all *.V01 files from this folder at the end of every backup? IOW, is ntbackup going to be unhappy if these files are deleted from the command line rather than thru the ntbackup UI?
