I'm the IT manager for a company of about 35 users. We use Folder Redirection (group policy on Win2003 Servers) for users My Docs, App Data, and Desktop.
I recently noticed space getting eaten up at a rapid pace so I started investigating and found the culprit to be HUGE SQLite files in a few users Firefox profile folders.
I have already deleted them, but I wanted to post this here so people could help me figure out why it's happening.
The two files were SEARCH.SQLITE and URLCLASSIFIER2.SQLITE.
This only occurred with 4 of my users...no one else seemed to be affected. On two of the profiles the search.sqlite file was huge, and the on the other two profiles, the urlclassifier2.sqlite file was huge.
When I say huge I mean hundreds of Gigs. The four files I deleted were a total of 1.4 Terabytes! The files were about 600gb, 300gb, 300gb, and 200gb.
Like I said, I just simply deleted them but wanted to post this here to begin a discussion about it because I didn't find ANY info on this subject on Google.
