In GFI EventsManager 2012 SR1 (build 20120214) the physical deletion of events has been introduced. This means that events will be deleted from the physical disk and will not appear in events browser or in any reports generated after that. The Auto Updates must be installed in order to make use of that feature, but it will be included on the version EventsManager 2013 and later.
In order to achieve this physical deletion, some steps must be performed:
- Go to Events Browser tab
- Create a view that includes the events you wish to delete
- Under Actions, select Mark Events as Deleted
- After that, the view will be empty and on the top there are two options: View deleted events and Delete Events
- Click Delete Events to complete the process
