Recently deployed 14.2 across Windows Server platforms; 2008 non-R2, 2008 R2, 2012, 2016.
Now seing the following folder accumulating large number of files on most systems, does not seem to be OS version specific.
C:\ProgramData\Symantec\Symantec Endpoint Protection\14.2.770.0000.105\Data\CmnClnt\ErrorInstances
In some cases several Gb in total.
Is there some way to prevent this and/or restrict the number of files retained (by size, count or date)?
I have executed SymDiag and nothing untoward is indicated.
Any assistance greatly appreciated.
This is SymQual:

You are running an older build of 14.2 and should get upgraded to the latest version if possible as we have had many fixes to this feature. If you continue to have issues after upgrading I would suggest opening a case with Support.
You may also want to take a look at what application is crashing so often and find a fix for that.Thanks,
This is not a new feature. It has been around for some time in and in 14.0 as well.
Please keep in mind there is a vulnerability in all versions of SEP prior to 14.3. So you will want to plan to upgraded to 14.3 soon.https://support.broadcom.com/security-advisory/security-advisory-detail.html?notificationId=SYMSA1762
