SQL Reporting Services abandonning files in IsolatedStorage

Posted on 2007-08-09
Last Modified: 2008-03-06
I have a windows forms application that is using SQL 2005 Reporting Services. It appears that Reporting Services is dumping and abandonning files in the following directory: C:\documents and Settings\%username%\local settings\application data\IsolatedStorage. Is this a known issue? Is there something I can do about it? Thanks.

    This file is a cache location for application data.  Although you could move it I don't know if the reports would continue to function if you didn't allow the app to store the data on the disk "somewhere".  I would recommen googling "Data Isolation in the .NET Framework" to find out more.

    I don't mind allowing the app to store the data. I would just like the data to be cleaned up afterwards. Some of the reports leave a 1GB file behind. I've started deleting the data as part of the app's functionality, but I don't really know what data is OK to get rid of.
