NAS filling up with QB data...????

Steve Mutchler
Last Modified: 2018-02-12
4 computers in workgroup accessing a network NAS...
NAS size is 3.57 TB...
When I do a full  backup it totals about 122 GB...
Of which 118 GB is all in one folder...
So...about 3+ TB is junk files...

Every now and then the NAS fills up...cannot save data to the NAS...
And after a few hours the NAS reduces the data back to it's normal size...have no clue as to why...
When I run Tree Size it seems to indicate that the Quickbooks data reporting too high allocation...

Seems to have started when I replaced 2 comptuers with brand new PC's...Win 10...
One of those PC's has QB installed and is the ONLY PC that access the QB data files located on the NAS...


Difficulty  getting work done as none of the 4 PC's can save data to the NAS...

Any ideas...suggetons appreciated...
