Cloud Sync job fails and leaves *_netapp files in the failed logs folder

Last Updated:

Applies to

  • BlueXP
  • Cloud Sync


  • Cloud Sync fails and leaves behind many "*_netapp" files in the failed folder.
  • _netapp hidden files are multipart upload files for large files.
  • These should be deleted when the file sync completes, but if the copy of the file fails in the middle due to errors like EIO etc., it will result in these temporary files not getting deleted by cloud sync and will occupy space on the target volume/share.
