Large isalog.bin and isalog.bak

I am running SBS 2003 Premium with ISA 2004.
I have a 15k scsi 18gb drive for the OS and a RAID-5 array for the data.
I am trying to remove or reduce any unneeded files for space and/or defrag reasons.

I have come across 2 "identical" 400mb files and would like to know if I need to keep one/both of them.

C:\Windows\Debug\isalog.bin (400,609, 03/15/06) and C:\Windows\Debug\isalog.bak (400,609, 03/15/06)

Can I delete/move one or both of these files?

    Also, in case there are some data folders you hadn't moved to your RAID array...

    Thanks for the quick, accurate response.
    I agree with the guy about 800mb+ of space on a C:\ drive for a log file.
    Seems like MS may not totally "trust" ISA 2004.

    Thanks again,

    P.S.  I already have the "Moving Data Folders for Windows Small Business Server 2003" document.
            I think it was you that provided it to me on a SBS defrag question a few weeks ago.

    No problem... and at least I'm consistent with my answers!  :-)
