    Really 447mb :eek: , mine is 4mb only. However regardless on size, we should know if there is a sort of self cleaning after reaching some mbs. Joe will surely shed more light.

    It definitely shouldn't be that large ( a couple MB is normal). Could you send a scan log to report@prevxresearch.com?I suspect too many files are untrusted on your PC which is causing it to monitor them more.

    Thanks!

    I had this at 127 MB, and yes when I look at the log, a lot of files are untrusted and monitored, including some of windows processes too. However uninstalled and reinstalled, and its at 6 MB right now. But I have noticed that if I manually scan a lot of files (including documents, softwares, media files and others) from an external HDD, the WRData folder will continue to grow. Also because of this monitoring the log file's size is also being enlarged drastically.

    I also sent a log as mine is at 97MB ATM and I'm assuming that these files are for offline protection? I never did ask before!

    Yeah TH, first entry is 6-23-11, about the time first installed. There has to be a stopping point or at least being able to automatically delete old entries. :eek:

    My files...one of the original install June 16, and a further install in another snapshot the other day.

    A bit of a difference...very interesting!

    P.S. The June 16 install, is not the original one, as that snapshot is no longer accessible due to a FP which I accidentally allowed removal of, thereby causing that snapshot to become unbootable. Lucky for me, I had the FD-ISR option of booting into an alternate snapshot.

    Excuse me boys, my mistake. Correct file size is 192MB, not the 1.5MB previously stated. Trying to get the hang of this new Logitech Track ball and I'm all over the place. Please accept my apologies. Even @ 192mb, its still to big........and growing!

    These log files are used to clean the PC to a previous state if malware is detected. It's likely that there are a number of non-whitelisted files in use by the users here currently, which is why the WRData folder is larger. If you could either write into our tech support inbox or send a scan log to report@prevxresearch.com, we will whitelist them from there. You can also use System Control - Active Processes and change files from Monitor to Allow, which will prevent them from storing new logging data.
