CDR and CAR purge are set to 90 days through the CDR interface.

cdr.mdf is 2,547,520 mb
cdr_log.ldf is 1,785,850

The only issue I see is that in the BARS log I get the following "The version of CAR installed-CAR4.1 has not been verified to function with BARS 4.0.9. You should upgrade BARS software to ensure compatibility or you could experience data loss."

If you want to download them you have to prefix "file get " and you can add one of the options (re...
