Hi All,

I'm working on a solution using EntLib 4.0 and Rolling flat files.

I want to limit the number of files created but the property "maxArchivedFiles" doesn't exist in this version.

What are my options (besided upgrading to v5).

Cheers,

Ken

If you want to avoid creating more than a set number of files then probably the only way to do that would be to create a custom trace listener that implements the maxArchivedFiles functionality.  The other option I can think of is some sort of external purge mechanism.
