Is it safe to delete the trace files that are crated by BV Control - SQL Server? It is been observed that as time passes the trace files are consuming too much space on the local hard drive which is becoming a concern.
These trace files are created as a result of the events that you have been configured for auditing on that target server, and can safely be deleted.
These trace files are temporary in nature and get created when data is moved from the trace database to the repository.
Make sure that the sql agent job that clears the trace files is enabled on the target sql server. The sql agent job name is "Bindview_delete_trace_files_job" . This job is responsible for clearing us the trace files, you can also manually delete them.
