    Under the miscellaneous junks scan with the pro version I see a large amount of MacriumImageGuardianService.log files. Are these safe to delete?

    Thanks,

    Assuming they’re all in AppData, yes they are.

    Hi Shane,

    The files are all in C:Program Data\Macrium so I am glad I did not delete them or my backup restore may not have worked. It would be nice to be able to select with check boxes, the files to remove when presented with a large list like this one that has files you don’t want to remove. I guess I need to add this folder to the exclusions right?

    Thanks,

    Dave

    Shane,

    I added the C:\Program Data to the exclusions and also found I can right-click on found entries and ignore or remove them from the list. I guess I must be missing where the help file is. Is there one?

    Thanks,

    Dave

    Unfortunately not. There’s limited documentation on the System Ninja product page and decent documentation for the Pro features in the Pro Club Knowledgebase; but there’s a lot of work still to be done in this area.

    Shane,

    Ok, thanks for the info. I just don’t want to do a click and oops! But that is why I asked. I left CCleaner to get your product after having some issues where I could not trust it anymore. I’ll read all the available help and ask questions if I am unsure of anything.

    Go into your backup definitions and you’ll see a list of XML files, these are backup scripts. Just select one and delete it. Then create a new backup routine in the Create a backup tab, put a check next to the drive you want to backup and click Image this disk and step through the wizard.

    Mandoo Mark,

    Are you referring to system ninja or Macrium for the procedure above? The files I was worrying about losing were the Macrium Guardian files that protect the image backups from getting infected with a virus. I think they are necessary when doing a restore.

    Thanks,

    Dave
