We have a Windows 2008 Standard Server running sharepoint services using IIS Version 7.

Last night the server rebooted after some windows updates were applied.

The server then created a 13.9GB Log file in the "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\12\Logs" folder.

Upon investigation this file was a Sharepoint Services log file, this server has never done this before and am looking for an explaination as to what may have caused it.

I have looked at the diagnostic logging level and this is unchanged from normal.

Thanks for any help you may be able to provide
