Last Modified: 2014-05-05
I have a windows server 2012 system that has run out of disk space this morning upon investigating what has used all the space i have found that under c:\windows\logs\CBS

there are several logs there which are very large firstly there is a CBS.log file which is 2.07GB

then there is another which is CbsPersist_20140428064839.log and thats taking up 33.06GB.
