Hi suhadi,

These cache files is required for applying Aquarius updates on the Client Security, it should not be removed or deleted. Disk space required for Client Security is at least 800 MB, please check does your computer meet the system requirements.

Thanks.

Hi,

 

800 MB is too little free space!

During signature download FSAUA is inserting the downloaded differentials into the existing file-set. This process can need an other 500MB for a short moment!

 

A Clinet Security 9.20 currently occupies 834 MB (no update running) and the size is constantly increasing due to the size of the signatures. 1GB is most likely to be reached in Q1/12!

 

Requirements should be set to 1,5 GB !

BTW: Same problem with almost all vendors. Have a look at the other satistics as well..
