    LDMAIN \ MBSDK \ AsyncFiles - what is it?

      Just curious, since searching for AsyncFiles on the Community yields zero hits.


      What is LDMAIN\MBSDK\AsyncFiles for?  It appears there are files being put there, called SDK****.fullscan every time an inventory scan is processed.  I've got about 90,000 files in that folder right now, and all the files ever contain is what I recognize as a device GUID, for example {9F1434E2-7C94-A74F-86BB-9B29DA3ED672}


      I assume it's safe to delete these periodically?

          Did you have any news about these files??


          I also have a huuuge number of files... Can I delete them??

            I still don't know exactly what they are, but I've been deleting them without any ill effect so far.


            I haven't tried this either, but in the Core registry, under HKLM\Software\LANDesk\ManagementSuite\MBSDK there is a REG_DWORD value called "Store Async Files" and the data is "0x00000001" - I would assume changing this to 0 would stop storing the files after a reboot.


            To quickly delete them, I made a little batch file and put it in the directory containing all the files.  Here's the code:


            @ECHO OFF
            ECHO Deleting MBSDK files from directory: %~dp0
            del "%~dp0\*.*scan" /f

              Any update to this?


              I had nearly 2 million files in folder, took nearly 5 hours to delete.


              I assume it's for some sort of sync/update.  We're using the MBSDK for Remedy (I think).
