There could be a risk of loosing data or job statuses when cleaning the activity window and it would mean a lot of manual work rebuilding the Activity Window.

The background of this recommendation is related to Automation Engine version 8.

We discussed this with internal and the conclusion is 'nothing should need to be removed from the activities window'.

Because of that, there were many enhancements/fixes made to V10 that made it so that it was not necessary to clear out the activities window.
