[BI 4.x] Manually clean-up old FRS content

In the process of re-building a TEST environment which has the FRS on a network-share.

Normally, we would just DELETE the old FRS sub-folders and redeploy the Sample files when we re-install SAP BO BI 4.0 (SP04 inc FP03)

In this version - we appear to be Blocked from that option because their is a new file at the bottom of each folder-tree with a name like....

deletion.criteria-guid[b1e269bb-a390-4ae3-b035-dd4873a87c9bb9].list ax8ijp4k1jnijruihndi1v8 asohejshnblhovk1anszjfs

Assuming that it is a new addition in 4.x to block accidental manual-deletion of files.

Of course - now I am trying to do a PLANNED manual-deletion of files...but that option is blocked.

Anyone know a work-around..? Thanks in advance.

    Hi Mark,

    My first questions are:

    a) in what way does it stop you deleting and

    b) What OS is it

    c) If you stop the system (SIA/fileservers) that point to this file repository, does it help?

    These files appear to be related to search indexing and I have several on my system too.

    I tried to delete them on my system (windows) and it completed without any errors.

    I do realize this is an old thread, but I am hoping you might have some insight for me.

    My Input FRS folder is also littered with these files and after having a session with SAP we removed the Platform Search service. My question is how to get rid of these files without deleting them one by one? Do you have any suggestions?

    Thank you
