We have a 2012R2 server running WMF 5.1 whose ConfigurationStatus folder under C:\Windows\System32\Configuration\ConfigurationStatus has over 69,000 files in it totaling about 25 GB. Is this folder supposed to be cleared out automatically by the DSC process or do we need to do that manually?
I ended up coming across another topic about this same issue from WMF 5.0. The advice there was to set up a process to manually clear this folder out. Does anyone know of any updates to this? Doesn't seem like it was fixed with the 5.1 update.
For now, setting to StatusRetentionTimeInDays = 5 does not seem to help on WMF5.1/Win7 (I tried changing the LCM, Running a Config, restarting machine, now letting for the next 24 hours to see if it makes any change).
