IntelliTrace Log ( .iTrace ) files and Visual Studio 2010 SP 1– Some Hidden Stuff

IntelliTrace debugging  is only available with Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate Edition, which collects debugging information in background and can be used at any point to time to analysis previous debugging data. IntelliTrace collected debugger information into a trace log file (.iTrace ) that can then be opened and debugged using Visual Studio later.  Size of .iTrace was always a concerns, as it’s take huge amount of your hard drive space and IntelliTrace is on by default. So whenever you are doing F5 debugging in Visual studio .iTrace is getting saved and it’s consuming your hard drive.

Well, before moving forward, I must thank to Larry Guger , Program Manager for IntelliTrace features .  Yesterday  I had a discussion with him on IntelliTrace .  During discussion I found there are several changes on IntelliTrace log saving which has been shifted with Visual Studio 2010 SP1. I have already blogged about few of them over here http://bit.ly/f8awhz. But few hidden stuff was missing which I got to know from Larry only.   In this post I am going  to discussed about those changes.
