Hi, i have an sbs 08 server with a 60gb c partition.
I have just run out of space, and have found a 15gb log file in
inetpub\logs\logfile\ W3SVC1372222313\u_extend text file.

I can't seem to delete it. from what i've read, i think its linked to IIS, so i have run net stop iis and even disabled IISadmin service.
But cannot remove it.
Is there a service or program i'm missing ?

cheers

Have you tried going to the security tab and taking ownership of the file?

Hi,
I would first check the File Ownership and open Windows Explorer under the "RUN AS ADMINISTRATOR". SBS places all logs in that directory so it could not be IIS but Exchange, SMTP, etc... I would open the log to see what datatypes are listed and go from there.
Disable Logging
1.Open IIS Manager
2.In Features View, double-click Logging.
3.On the Logging page, in the Actions pane, click Enable to enable logging or click Disable to disable logging.
