Will cut and paste old Connectivity log files and MessageTracking log files to a different location cause any issues. I dont want to change the location of where the logs go, just move old log files. They are all Text files ranging from 91KB to 10MB. There is about 1GB worth of files. Disk space is running low and am looking to free up some more as a temporary measure until we can extend the disk.

I move our logs on a regular basis.  I've never had any issues come up from doing it... just remember that if you use the message tracking center in system manager it won't be able to access the logs that you've moved.
