Cleanup Function

Post by Todor » Thu Oct 27, 2011 12:28 pm

My Ranorex programm grows and so does the garbage in my Repository, I have seen that there is a Cleanup-function. I wanted to know how trustworthy this function is, before i use it. Are there any sideeffects that migth occur? Is it possible that this function deletes repository items that are in use from added existing items?

I just want to be on the save side before i use this build in function.

with kind regards

Hi,

Normally there shouldn't be a problem, because this functionality searches for all referenced items and if they are referenced then they won't be deleted. But if you don't trust this function, I would suggest you to backup your project before you try it.
