There is currently an issue where the 2018 UltraTax CS application is creating Fixed Assets data files for replicated clients that do not have assets. When replicating UltraTax CS clients in UltraTax CS, folders are created for clients within the DeprData folder . These folders are not being automatically deleted when indicated from the DeprData folder which can cause issues upon reentry.

Update: This was corrected with UltraTax CS 2018 Platform update 18.3.2 released on March 21st, 2019.

Note: The folders previously created prior to the update will not be automatically removed and will need to be manually deleted from the directory.

To remove: Navigate to the following location - X:\WinCsi\DeprData\ where X is the drive letter where UltraTax CS is installed, locate the replicated folders and delete and folders with zero assets existing within the folders created.
