How to reduce the number of content revisions stored in Symantec Endpoint Protection ManagerInetpubcontent folder in SEP SBE. The number of content updates stored in the \Program Files\Symantec\Symantec Protection Center\Inetpub\content folder can be reduced by creating the setting called "scm.lucontentcleanup.threshold" to the conf.properties file.
