Lots of .lck-xxxxxx Files

I'm doing replica snapshots with DC 1.5.1.5

In the backup folder I'm seeing a lot of files with e.g.
- .lck-dee50200000000
- Hostname.company.local-SnapshotXX.vmsn

(1x vmns per Backup and 1..3 lck per Backup)

who generates these files?
can these files be deleted ?

Best regards

Klaus

Re: Lots of .lck-xxxxxx Files

Yes, you can safely delete those files, except if you backup VMs that keep some snapshots along with your base disks. In that case you should delete all .vmsn/ .xml files except the ones corresponding to your current snapshots.

Latest 1.5.1.8 makes a full cleanup by default upon every replica cycle. Thus, the simplest solution is to upgrade.

Those files are the .vmsn/.xml files corresponding to the subsequent backup snapshots created by (c)XSIBackup
