NDPS very large files

Posted on 2009-12-21
Last Modified: 2012-06-22
We have a 6.5 cluster running NDPS and are having a problem with one printer which is generating a single very large file named DB77.1  showing as 2,199,586kb- can I delete this file or is it required for correct operation of the NDPS system?

Thanks in advance

    You do not mention where the file is generated. By the extension it looks like a NDPS Spool file which is usually created in a 12345.PA (or any other numbers) directory. The .PA directory is the spool directory that belongs to the printer. You can check with iManager in the printers job list to whom that job belongs, and troubleshoot from there. It does no harm to delete the file, but it is probably in use...
