updfiles/base_nonnups getting bloated

Recommended Posts


It has come to my attention that `/Library/Application Support/ESET/esets/modules/data` is getting really bloated... and for some reason "clear update cache" is disabled from the preferences. Is this bloat normal? and just to confirm that theres no negative consequences to delete *.nup?


/Library/Application Support/ESET/esets/modules/data$ du -h

Please list the files along with the size in the ./updfiles/base_nonnups folder. For some reason you have 12 GB of files there. I have 2 files there which are 66 MB in total.

You can delete the content of the updfiles folder manually but let us first check the content of the folder.

Not sure whats the best way to dump all the dir, but here it goes...

If the big nup files in the base_nonnups folder are not removed automatically with the latest version of ESET installed and after deleting the content of the updfiles folder, please open a support ticket with your local ESET distributor.
