Can I zip Monitoring Database? Will the data be visible in web interface?



One of our customer has a problem with his free space disk on server on wich PRTG Network Monitor is installed. The Monitoring Database folder size is 30GB. Can we zip this folder? If we zip this folder his data will be available for graphics and reports on web interface yet? Do you have any recomendation to keep the free size of the disk without loosing the data?

Thanks in advance.

Dear Bruno,

manually zipping is not possible. It's possible to enable the NTFS compression however. This can be done in the Server Admin tool (or with the Windows Explorer). Would it be possible to move the data-folder to another (local) drive on the PC/Server?

Best Regards.
