These log files are very compressable. Enable NTFS compression on the directory to compress existing and new log files.

NPS puts all log files into a single directory, so you wouldn't delete any directories.

Yes, I am sure that can be done via scripting, but that would be a different question.

I could make one up, may not be the cleanest way to do it, though. Post the new question, and I am sure that someone will answer it.
