C:\WINDOWS\system32\LogFiles\W3SVC599050834

This log directory is growing huge.  Is there a way to set up the max size for the logs so that it doesn't fill up the file system?

Why not backup the logs and remove them?  Burn some to DVD and remove them. Or change the location of the directory.

If you don't want logs then disable them in the IIS Manager.

>> change the location of the directory

It is currently in C:\  Can it be in D:\ ?   When changed, reboot is required?

I would stop and restart the web site, but that should do it.

Ok, so,
'C:\WINDOWS\system32\LogFiles' can be whatever I define, and then 'W3SVC599050834' will be created by IIS automatically?
