Hi All

I have a client who is running low on disk space and i am currently in the process of cleaning up old log files.

I have come across networkwizardinstaller.log that is located in c:\windows\temp and is 14GB with todays modified date.

Is it possible to delete this file?

Thanks

Anything in the temp folder can be removed (if it can't it will let you know), especially a 14Gb log file!

Agree with alanhardisty. You can delete it. If you want to be really sure, rename it, restart server and then delete it. But I think it is not necessary in this case.

I have the same issue.

Stop the spool service and delete all file on C:\Windows\System32\spool\PRINTERS.

Reboot your computer.

It work for me.
