Hi
  I have a file on one of my server drives called eventlog.out.  The file is 131Gigs and it is taking all space up on my drive.
Is this file for my eventlog.
Can I simply delete this file?

Cheers
Stephen

Where (path) is the file on the drive?

My guess is it's part of a program called EventLog Analyzer.  If you're not using it then uninstall it, then delete the file if the uninstall doesn't.

The Windows Event Viewer log files have a .evt extension and usually live in %SystemRoot%\System32\Config\ so it's definitely not them.

Do you have AdventNet ManageEngine installed or some other server management utility such as GFI Event Analyzer?  Because the file you mention is not a Windows file.

I'd say back it up first (write it to a network share drive on one of your workstations) and then delete it.

Also... if 131GB is taking up ALL the space on your drive you don't have enough room.  Consider moving your data files to another partition.  See http://sbsurl.com/movedata for instructions on doing that.
