PC-Doctor saved data, how to reduce / limit / clean it up automatically

My ThinkPad  ( a  6457-4XU )  i.e.  a T61  running Windows Xp Pro (32bit i.e. x86)

and ThinkVantage Toolbox i.e. PC-Doctor  version   6.0.5849.23

stores files on its own accord, in this folder --

 

  c:/Documents and Settings/All Users/Application Data/PCDr/5849/

 

There's almost  200MB  of snapshots and all that other stuff in there ... 2 years' worth.

 

Where's the setting in the Toolbox / Doctor  which will tell it how to clean up after itself. ?

How many snapshots, how many weeks/months worth of data to retain ?

 

I don't like having so many old files kept around by this application.

There are  2317  files in this folder --

 

  c:/Documents and Settings/All Users/Application Data/PCDr/

 

Those items all have to be scanned during nightly backups and virus checks on a regular basis.

How can I inform the application that it should not retain so much stuff in my application data area?  Larry

Re: PC-Doctor saved data, how to reduce / limit / clean it up automatically

The largest number of files are distributed among the following subdirectories :

 

  • AddOnContent/
  • hardware/
  • logs/  (*  This is where the greatest quantity of files reside  *)
  • performance/
  • smartdata/
  • software/
