We're running a SBS 2003 SP2 network and need to free up space on the C drive. SQL Server\90\setup bootstrap\log\files takes up 1 GB of space.  This may not sound like a lot but we’re out of space on the C Drive so we need to take care of this space issue now. The latest log file is dated 9/2011.  Can these files be deleted? Thanks in advance for your help.
