Cleanup of drive

Hi Gurus,

I was told there is a procedure to cleanup the drive after a successful install of sap, this is my current config..

win2k3 server

c:\ == 150 gb

d:\150 gb

the D drive has Oracle on it and the drive is almost full at 138 gb, i was told there is a command to run to cleanup the drive as sap puts a lot of unnecessary files in the drive that are not needed for it to run, Is that true if yes then how do we cleanup ?

Regards

Ravi

    Hi Ravi,

    I guess, if it is space problem you can move datafile to other drive via brtools to get free space in current drive.

    cleanup untility is there but I don't know how much space it will cleanup.

    After installation you can delete installation dir. But I think you should not delete any other files except installation DIR.

      Tushar,

      How do i do that.....? ir move the data file to other drive via brtools to get space in current drive.

      The installation dir is already on another drive that has a ton of space..so not a problem...

    there is only one directory which may contain unnecessary files:

    the oracle offline archive directory.

    have a look in to the oracle forum an search for ARCHIVELOG OFF

    peter

    but this is only an option if you did not need to recover your database out of a former backup.

    Hi Ravi,

    You can move datafiles from one drive to another drive via brtools:

    PATH:

    brtools ---> space management -


    >Move datafile -


    >4( datafile name ) ->cont->3 ( Move destination: enter the destination path ) --->cont.
