Transport sid_buffer

In our transportation system we have 5 folders in the directory E:\usr\sap\trans\buffer named [SID]_snapshots.

e.g. E:\usr\sap\trans\buffer\PRD_snapshots

These folders contain over 50gb of data.

Can anyone advise on the best way to remove or archive this data and what are the implications of deleting it?

I have already looked through SAP note 41732, but this doesn't pertain to these particular folders. Any help would be much appreciated!

Hi Paul,

These snapshots hold static information related buffer and can be archived.

You can simply and safely remove old files to other file systems and compress them.

These are created in if "buffersnapshot=ture" is set in transport profile.

If this was set, you should keep lastes snapshots, perhaps of an year and move the old ones.

There is only one SAP note that talks about it, at that was already shared before.

816997 - No import after QA approval

If I will get something, will update on this thread.
