File handles
Jan 13th, 2009 at 12:16pm
I'm using WD version 4.2.2

Monitorin the WD tasks in the task manager the number of file handles each task has seems to grow and grow until after a number of weeks the tasks on our server have approximately 14,000 handles, at which point the number stays around 14,000. The server and in particular the WD tasks run a lot slower at this point. Restarting the tasks releases the handles and the tasks run a lot faster again. Is this a known bug/anything I can do to fix the issue?

Many Thanks,

Hello Chris,

This issue has been resolved in WD 4.5.2, see

Just install the latest version (currently 4.5.7) "on top" of your current install so it will see your tasks and settings.
