Auto-Updates is a feature available within Metalogix Essentials that allows users to have updates, that are made to the application by our development team, automatically installed on their machines. This feature can be disabled or enabled, as per your personal preference.
When starting up the Essentials program as an administrator, the Product Update Manager will pop up when new updates are available. You can choose to install the update, or decline to do so.
You can also access the auto-update feature through the Help tab within the product by selecting Check for Updates.
NOTE: The Auto Update feature is not supported for versions below 2.3
The auto-update feature can be disabled in the Product Update Manager by selecting the "Disable tool automatic updates".
The auto-update feature can also be disabled in the Profile Manager by doing the following:
1.On the Help tab of Essentials, click Profile Manager.
2.Navigate to the Advnaced section of the Profile Manager, and setting the Enable Automatic Updates feature to "False" to disable, and "True" to enable.
You may notice that the Essentials Installation location folder may be growing in size.
This occurs as a result of the tool's auto-update feature. Currently, Essentials framework doesn't support automatically removing outdated packages, so this must be done manually. In order to do so, follow these steps:
1.Close the Essentials tool.
2.Navigate to the Essentials Folder (C:\Program Files\Quest\Essentials), and Run the AppClean.exe file as an Administrator.
3. The appclean.exe will run, and once it is done running it will close once the clean is done. This folder will now be cleaned (from 10+ GB to 755 MB less) and the Essentials application will work as usual.
