Dear Experts,

We have discovered a file (WCF.log) which as appeared in the C:\Temp folder on one of our application servers.

We believe that it has something to do with MDT 2012 as it won't let us delete it unless we stop the MDT service.

The problem is that it has grown to nearly 15GB in a matter of weeks and is filling the remaining space on our system drive.

We've no idea how to control this file or if its even required. If it is, is there a way that it can be pointed at an alternative location?

I have attached a sample of the file for info.
