easy...either figure out the error in the log or delete the log file...if it is an error log...but there must be some major errors that need to be addressed if the error log is reaching such high sizes..

If you want to check the folder size and determine folders that occupy space other than oracle, use this program , Treesize

Then make sure to scan your system thoroughly for virus and Spywares.

2) Start  --> run --> typein: %temp%

the log files should be removed for more free space on your hard disk.

as for how to remove the files, you may certainly just issue DEL or DELTREE commands to clear the specific log folder even its sub-folders, but i prefer that you go to the management console of ORACLE and APACHE, choose corresponding options to clear the log by the application itself.

i am sorry that i could not give you further information in detail because we dont know required information about your system.

anyway, hope it helps,

The logfile should be configured for time, space, content, and place.
Since it does not seem desireable anyway, I'd try to send it to bit-bucket-in-sky
How to do in product I dunno, I refer here to use of 'NUL' for reports we never want to read, using redirection if needed. Do not give the file a real name in the first place
