Ascom files!

Recommended Posts

My laptop displayed a message last night saying minimum storage left!!

I checked it out and so far have found 2,560,000 files taking up 21.5 Gb

of storage. The files went back to Jan 2019 when I did an Ascom update.

Anyway bit by bit I am deleting them to make space on the HDD, I know 

PHD has log files and I regularly delete them but it's worth checking your

/Documents/Ascom/logs !!!

Ron I have sent you a pm on how to turn off these log files being created.

Is there a reason why it can't be shared on the forum?

None at all Clive.

Did not realize anyone else needed to know.


What are you connecting through Ascom.

I am guessing it is your camera.

If you have it connecting automatically you will have to stop it connecting.


Once you get to the stage where you have to manually select it there will be a check box for creating log files.

Un check this box and your problem is solved.


You can then choose to select automatically again once you have turned off the log files.


Another way to check is open ASCOM diagnostics  in your start menu -- click on the trace tab and make sure everything is unchecked.
