Hi,

These are log files of all users who access OWA, OMA and ActiveSync. They can be safely deleted and are for your information only.

As stated, these are just IIS text based log files.  You can delete them, though I have a tendency to save everything... so I would be copying them off the drive and saving them to DVD or CD periodically.  In addition, you can configure the IIS web site to either STOP logging OR to save the log files to another location or drive.

I also tend to keep the log files for a long time, I will ZIP/RAR them for longer term storage.   Also, I often activate NTFS compression on these folders so they don't impact disk space too much.  the Text log files really compress down A LOT.
