Hello ,

We have 5Gb of log files in the location "c:\Program Files\SQL Server\MSSQL.2\Reporting Services\Log Files"

Are they required?  Can we delete them.

    Accepted Solution

    Yes, you can simply delete the log files. These log files may be required to trouble shoot issues if any. But if everything is working fine, then you don't need these log files. But before deleting its good to zip those files and keep a backup.
