    Re: large sims directory

    Its does have the potential to grow to that size or bigger. It all depends on your individual configuration, such as where the SQL backups are stored. Have a check in the system manager and look at where the SQL backup folder is. I've just checked my SIMS application share and its running at 3Gb, my SQL backup folder is running at 23Gb 8O

    Re: large sims directory

    We had a similar problem after installing a patch that supposedly solved a duplicate entry problem relating to the Autumn Census.

    It seems that Sims was writing to tempdb but not shrinking the database.

    Believe it or not but it was all resolved by a patch from Capita (yes thats right a patch from Capita that does some good).
