How to clear Preview files from your server - c06388069


In version 4.0.x there is a known issue in which preview files are not automatically removed from the server. When using server-side Print Preview, PrinterOn does not automatically delete the preview files generated by the PrintAnywhere Server from the server, which, if left unattended, can result in disk space issues.

This issue occurs because the default value of the Delete Preview Files After setting was erroneously set to 0 days.


To fix this issue, you should increase the value for this setting. The recommended value is 2 days.

  1. In Configuration Manager, click Advanced > Components.
  2. In the Managed Components list, locate the PrintAnywhere Server and click the adjacent Configure button.
  3. In the PAS settings, open the Job Settings tab.
  4. Locate the Delete Preview Files After setting in the Preview Settings panel.
