Hi all. My old trusty IIS 4.0 webserver's disk space is being used up.

Can I safely delete W3svc folders with older date stamps without any problems?

I don't need the old log files.

    Of course, I must advise that you save them in case you need to analyze them in the future.  If you're SURE, SURE, SURE you'll NEVER, NEVER, NEVER need them-you can safely delete them.
