We discovered that the Visual Studio 2012 Test runner always generating IntelliTrace files and the results are that our servers run out of disk space.

It happens when we use VSTest to run the unit tests and if the unit test calls an executable it will always create IntelliTrace files. It doesn't matter what version of Visual Studio (Premium or Ultimate) is installed. 

I didn't find a way to disable IntelliTrace by using a runconfig file.

What would the information I would need to collect in order to increase the chances of your team being able to re-create the issue. I am having the same issue with the test runner in 2013 premium generating iTrace files in %temp%, but I would like to be able to provide enough information for your team to be able to re-create the issue.
