    Question [SOLVED] Many thousands of .msg files in my Temp directory

    Hello,
    I installed the ZCO (5.0.10_GA_2638_5.0.2767.10) two days ago (March 9th). I have Outlook 2003, SP3, on Windows XP. Reinstalled it one day ago (March 10th), because I wanted to force an initial sync again (have since learned I didn't have to go quite that far, but that's not the point here). I noticed that from the first day of the ZCO install, many thousands of .msg files are accumulating in my profile temp directory (%userprofile%\Local Settings\Temp). The names of the files are of the form zcal-00005619018649181188243681472272551831236161302287 3430-0x10-3-10-2009-12-33-26-481.msg. These files do not go away when Outlook is closed, or when the system is rebooted and i currently have 37,206 of them in my temp directory, after basically three full work days. This should not be! Am I experiencing an anomaly, or is this a "feature?" (Btw, it happens on my laptop as well.)

    The content of the .msg files is mostly calendar appointments, as far as I can tell, and if I open several of them in a row, they are the same item for maybe 5 or 6 of the files, then it moves on to another item. It seems like I get 5 or 6 files per calendar item I either create, or modify. Seems excessive. Is this part of the synchronization process and how can I stop it?

    Follow-up question, not totally unrelated: can one install a newer version of the ZCO than the version of ZCS one is running? We can't update the servers to 5.0.14 just yet, so we'll be on 5.0.10 for a couple months. Could I use a later version of ZCO than 5.0.10?

    You have calendar tracking enabled. Run ZCOLogCtl.exe (start->run->ZCOLogCtl.exe) and uncheck 'enable calendar tracking'.

    You can safely delete all those .msg files.

    Our policy is that old connectors work with new servers (ie, people upgrade their servers first, the update the dekstops). Looking through the 5.0.11-5.0.15 fixes, I see a couple that depend on server updates.

    Sam, thank you so much. This means I learned something new about the logging, I hadn't even thought about that anyway, but it was not intuitive to me that calendar logging continued after disabling logging. Thank you!
