Hi,

yes, you can delete it, it is used for troubleshooting purpose.

0. Stop the Windows SBS Manager service.
1. rename the DataServiceComponents.log  to DataServiceComponentsold.log
2. Start  the Windows SBS Manager service and see in explorer.refresh it
3. now you can see the new DataServiceComponents.log  file should created automatically.
4. now delete DataServiceComponentsold.log

Here is an app that I've used at multiple clients to identify the largest files on a server or desktop, their size and location.

It works great and provides a fast view of what is taking up the most space.
