Which PDB files are served by the Microsoft symbols server? RRS feed

  • Question

  • We use two local network shares to cache our own product symbols as well as those downloaded from Microsofts and other symbol stores.

    Due to a temporary misconfigurations, many of the PDB files downloaded from Microsoft ended up spoiling the network share for our product symbols (e.g. ucrtbase.pdb).

    The URLs mentioned above cannot be scraped using a browser, etc.

    How can I find out which PDB files came from one of the symbol servers and thus are save to delete?

    Sorry for delay in reply.

    When debugging, you could open Module window which is in Debug/Windows, to check the symbol files locations.Please check this:

    Any feedback will be expected.
