I'm doing some low disk space work and I have run into the file

C:\Program Files\Syslogd\Logs

This file is about 2GB in size, and contains one PIXSysLog.txt file and then a bunch of 30-50MB files. They date as far back as 2 months. Can I delete any of this? Or is there way set this log to delete itself after maybe 8-10 days?

Thanks-

Looks like you're using something like Kiwi syslog deamon. If so, you should be able to set it to rotate or zip the log. It should't be a problem to delete it but I would first zip it (just txt so the zip will be waaay smaller). Keep in mind that as long as the syslog deamon is running or the PIX is logging the file will fill up again.
