Anyone come across a situation where NDPS is creating huge files in the NDPS
folder e.g. almost a gigabyte.

Re: Large Files in NDPS folder

Hi Mick,

Yes, this happens sometimes when printing large (pdf, pictures) documents,
or when a print job gets corrupted. That's why it is considered good
practise to point the NDPS Manager spooldirectory *.PSM to another volume
than SYS.
In case you want to move the Manager to another volume, follow this TID:

Yes. Preferably through Print Job control in iManager or NWadmin, but if you
don't see them or don't know which PA the job is submitted too, just delete
the file.
