      Summary

      Downloading file from FileMaker Server 12 using the FileMaker Admin Tool permanently leaves a copy of the .zip file on the server every time you download!

      Product

      FileMaker Server

      Version

      12

      Operating system version

      Windows 2008r2

      Description of the issue

      Downloading file from FileMaker Server 12 using the FileMaker Admin Tool permanently leaves a copy of the .zip file on the server every time you download!

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      Following these steps:
      Open the FileMaker Admin Tool
      Select Databases (to bring up a list of database)
      Closed the databases I wanted to download
      Right click in it and selected “download”

      Expected result

      After downloading a file from the server any utility files would be cleared off the server.

      Actual result

      Look in the c:/Program Files/FileMaker/FileMaker Server/Admin/Admin-master-tomcat/temp
      (or wherever your FileMaker install is)

      Even restarting the entire computer to see if that would clear out the .zip files but the files remained.
      I have only tested this on PC servers but did test it on two of them and the .zip files remain.

      I ran into this problem because it filled up my entire C drive! It should delete the zip files after downloading.

      Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

      Harddrive space low
