There are collecting snapshot agent’s (SQL7.0) generated files in the separate directories (named like 20030923020007, 20030716020008, and so on) in my ReplData directory.
Why does count of such directories increase without interruption?
Can I delete directories with old date of modifying from my C:\MSSQL7\REPLDATA\unc\ directory?
When a snapshot is recreated, SQL will make a new subfolder with datetime stamp as its name to put the data in Repldata folder. There should be a clean up job to delete the subfolder once the snapshot is delivered. My guess is the process has been interrupted so the cleanup step was not completed. You can delete the subfolder since it's no longer being used.
