Which files can I remove to avoid disk space issues?

You can remove some temporary files to clear up disk space.


Output Generator or TEXTML Server report a disk full condition. Temporary files from Output Generator or logs from TEXTML Server can consume excessive disk space.


  1. Delete any TEXTML Server log files that are no longer required. The log directory is defined in the TextmlServerCfg.xml file, for example, C:\ProgramData\IxiaSoft\TextmlServer43\Log.
  2. Delete old Output Generator jobs from the temp folder. For example, C:\outptugenerator\prod\temp.
You can set up a batch file named cleanup-temp.bat to automatically delete the Output Generator temp folders. Here is a sample batch file:
@echo off
if [%1] == [] goto Usage
if [%2] == [] goto Usage
if [%1] == [-f] goto FileList

if [%1]==[] goto :eof
if [%2]==[] goto :eof

set nbday=%2
set target=%1

IF not EXIST %target%\nul goto ErrorNoPathFound
forfiles /p %target% -d %nbday% /c "cmd /c if @isdir==FALSE del /f /q @file"
forfiles /p %target% -d %nbday% /c "cmd /c if @isdir==TRUE rd /q/s @file"
goto :eof

echo Usage
echo cleanup-temp.bat pathname date
echo   pathname      Indicates the path to clean.
echo   date          Selects files with a last modified date greater
echo                 than or equal to (+), or less than or equal to
echo                 (-), the specified date using the
echo                 "dd/MM/yyyy" format; or selects files with a
echo                 last modified date greater than or equal to (+)
echo                 the current date plus "dd" days, or less than or
echo                 equal to (-) the current date minus "dd" days. A
echo                 valid "dd" number of days can be any number in
echo                 the range of 0 - 32768.
echo                 "+" is taken as default sign if not specified.
echo or 
echo cleanup-temp.bat -f filename
echo   filename      A file that contain a flat list of folder/file
echo                 to clean up. Each line conatin one path and a date
echo                 value. Line starting with # are ignoreac

goto :eof

Echo The specify directory "%target%" doesn't exist
goto :eof

if not exist %2 then goto Usage

for /F "eol=# tokens=1,2" %%i in (%~2) do call :SingleEntry %%i %%j
goto :eof
To execute the file, in a command prompt, type cleanup-temp.bat C:\windows\temp -5. This will delete any folders and files that are older than 5 days.
