    uvscan on LInux taking space


    Hello all,

    I have uvscan running on Linux server. It is installed in /usr/local/uvscan

    I dont have /usr as a separate partition..Due to the file produced by uvscan my / is getting full.. Just wanted to know if it is safe to remove the files in the qurantine directory..

    In fact the quarantine directory in /usr/local/uvscan has lots of directories
    similar to the following dating way back from March

    drwx------ 2 nobody nobody 4096 Mar 4 23:22 h257M8kp030041
    drwx------ 2 nobody nobody 4096 Mar 4 23:25 h257PDkp030808

    drwx------ 2 nobody nobody 4096 Mar 5 05:17 h25DH5kp003511
    drwx------ 2 nobody nobody 4096 Mar 5 05:17 h25DH6kp003514
    drwx------ 2 nobody nobody 4096 Mar 5 05:17 h25DH6kp003515
    drwx------ 2 nobody nobody 4096 Mar 5 05:17 h25DH7kp003523
    drwx------ 2 nobody nobody 4096 Mar 5 05:17 h25DH9kp003544

    These directories together amount to a space of around 1.2 G ...I want to remove them to free up space for root so just wanted to know if it is safe to do so or it wil affect the uvscan

    Thanks in advance

    Hello,

    This program was installed by someone else on the server. This is from Mcafee and is used to check files on the server for any virus. Sorry I dont have much understanding about this program so cant answer to your satisfaction, but I will try and find out the link for this from the readme files and post it .. The links should have some documentation about its installation and configuration


    Thanks

    I take this is used on an email server? Anway call uvscan with --delete so it won't quarintine files. You can wipe your quarintine directories without any problems.

    Hello Genlee

    Thanks.. I removed most of the quarantine directories and made some space.. I will use the --delete option as you have suggested...
