dfmpurge wants services stopped

Currently Being Moderated


My DFM installation is constantly getting slower and slower so I wanted to run the dfmpurge utility to clean the database.

Unfortunately whenever I run it in purge mode it tells me that not all DFM services are stopped even if I have stopped them. (screenshot)


I have the version dfmpurge_dfm-5.1x_windows_64.zip of the tool which is the correct one.

Here are the stats of the server:


The server is vmware virtual machine and the E: drive hosting the DFM installation and database is an iSCSI lun so I have also snapdrive installed.


Does anyone have an idea how to get the dfmpurge tool working?
