Hi,

It is known SBS 2008 is very log file consumptive, there is a Technet Blog post about reclaiming disk space, this might help:

I trim mine with the following command which creates a scheduled task to do it :-

at 12:00 /EVERY:Su Forfiles.exe -p C:\WINDOWS\system32\LogFiles\W3SVC1 -m *.log -d -30 -c \"Cmd.exe /C del @path\"

This will run every Sunday, and will trim files in that folder older than 30 days.  Adjust to suit.
