Debug > search-dumps >> Too many files = Drive clutter and Backup Interference

:writing_hand: search-dumps folder has too many files = Drive clutter and Backup Interference

My problem is that the debug > search-dumps folder has too many files = Drive clutter and Backup Interference.

This needs some sort of HouseKeep or maintenance routine to remove older or no longer required files.
Please fix.

Thanks, we just fixed the issue.

You can safely delete these files if you wish, and they won’t re-appear again.

Thanks for the update! :grin:
