    Why is it necessary to get a system tray popup about privacy clean. Would be good to be able to stop it from happening.

    It is the flushing of memory to the database for caching purposes, so that makes sense. Eventually we have to write to the database and we delay it as long as we can.

    Just to be clear this mutes the Clean on Browser exit message, but not the General privacy clean every 4 hours, or when done manually. The Enterprise edition has an additional option to mute that also. If there is enough interest we can push it down to the client too. Our feeling was that a client would probably want to know what is happening. But I guess they could decide that if they wanted.

    Hello,
    I think this issue is solved and it seems it was related to Kaspersky Anti-Virus. I have added all five BlackFog Privacy folder's executables to the trusted apps list of KAV and the hard disk thrashing has disappeared.

    Best regards
