Hi guys,

I have Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager Version: 11.0.6100.645 install taking up too much disk space on the server its installed on. Its currently using 21GIG and the the HDD is only

Can someone please confirm if its safe to delete old definitions from the /Inetpub subfolder and the duplicate backups in the /data/backup subfolder?

This server is really old and only has a 37GIG HDD and I only have a little over 1GIG of disk space free.

Thanks in advance.
