trace-vss file is too big, how to reduce the file size

Hi Guys,

Exchange2010 trace-vss.txt is a text file which is more than 8GB now. I want to reduce the file size or move the file to a different drive.

Can someone help?

1. Do you really need this log?
"tracelog -stop vss" will stop the log
create a text file named vss.ctl that contains only the following text:
9138500e-3648-4edb-aa4c-859e9f7b7c38 vss
Use the following command to start tracing:
tracelog -start vss -f x:\vss.etl -guid vss.ctl -flag 0xff -level 0xaa
Note  Replace "x:\" with the path to the directory where you would like the trace log file to be stored.
Use the following command to stop tracing:
tracelog -stop vss
