C Drive is Low on space for *tmp data If ESET Endpoint install


Go to solution Solved by Shipon_BD,

Recommended Posts

Once ESET Endpoint installs we’re facing an issue with all the Desktop/Laptop, the C drive is getting out of space. After checking we’ve seen that the Installer folder contains a huge amount of *tmp data and took maximum space(more than 80GB). Even the ESET antivirus is in protected status. Maybe there’s something wrong with the antivirus. Please see the attached images for better understanding.

From the screenshots it is not clear what are the names of the tmp files so we can't tell if they were generated by ESET or not. Please provide some name of the tmp files.

ESET may created temporary files in the user or system temporary folders, not in the Installers folder. There should be just the msi installer that was used for installation of ESET.

The names suggest that the files were created by Windows Installer. Is there any reason why you suspect them to be related to ESET?

After installing ESET Endpoint that can happen...........automatically temp is generated & If uninstall ESET it stops generating temp.

It is for sure that the files are created by Windows Installer. Maybe ESET installation is being pushed to the machine in certain intervals. Please provide a Procmon boot log. Stop logging after a reboot only after the temp files have been created. Do not keep Procmon logging for a longer time than a few minutes.

It confirms my suspicion that something is continually pushing the ESET installer on the clients. Could you check in the ESET PROTECT console if you have a software install task assigned to some of the dynamic groups?
