MSG 7.5 how to free up disk space ?



I was running a MSG 7.5 appliance since many months with a 75% disk usage. Since sunday morning, the use space turn 98%. Send and receive mails are very long and i don't know how to free up disk...


I have already modify the quarantine retention (from 14 to 8 days), i also modify the log retention to 8 days and reboot the appliance.


Nothing change, the quarantine usage is 995MB which is not very large.

I see that i could delete old PPS but i don't know how ?


Thank you.

    Hello benpat,


    You can find old System upgrades under System>Licenses and Upgrade>History at the bottom of the page. 

    They can normally be safely removed.

  • Hi Ben,


    The issue is over, it was a spam attack.

    The attack stops and we get back the free space.

    Dear Ben,

    The MSG 7.5 itself is quite dated, over 1.5 years old. Is there a new edition in progress?

    Thanks in advance, Yours Sincerely:
    Tamas Feher, Hungary.

    Hello Tamas,


    The latest version 8.0.1 is available on the product page since many weeks already.


    @benpat thank you for keeping us updated.

  • I must plan the migration but i'm a bit short of time 'till the end of year.
    Hope to do that begin 2016 !
