  • Deleting the Updates Folder

    I'm prepping for a move and am backing up all my HS stuff. I've noticed that th updates folder in the HomeSeer directory is 311 MBs. If all my software is runing as advertised, do I still need the stuff in these folders, or can I nuke it? or should I nuke all but the "latest" version subfolder of each plugin, etc.?

    Hardware: i5-6400T w/16GB RAM & SSD w/HS3Pro, Z-Net, Harmony Hub x2, Echo Dot x2, Ocelot
    Plugins: Z-wave, HSTouch, BLBackup, Harmony, GTS CPUXA, UltraMon3, Nest
    HSTouch: Multiple Android Devices; 5 x ToteVision MD-1001 10.1" Win 7 Tablets
    Devices: Cooper RF9501 x4, RF9517 x6, RF9534 x1, RF9540-N x7, RF9542 x1, RF9542-Z x2, RFHDSCG x1, RFWC5 x5; Intermatic HA02 x6; FortrezZ MIMOLite x3; Leviton VRPD3-1LW x4, VRR15-1LZ x6; Nest Tstat & 9x Protects; Dragon PD-100 x3, PA-100 x3

    Since the updater now includes a "last version" of the biggies like HS and HSP I would say nuke them.

      Don't nuke the whole folder as the updater log file, descriptions and icons folders are updater files.

        In the spirit of working with HS, maybe Rick could have the update call a script (updater_script.txt) upon its completion.

        The user could then write a script (or grab a copy from another user) that deletes older updates based upon our own criteria (e.g., number of updates to keep, age of older updates).

        The downside is that you would not be able to have the script contain any HS commands since the updater will more than likely have shut HS down.
