2008 R2 Domain Controller - large log files filling up system32\LogFiles

Last Modified: 2016-02-02
I'm noticing some large log files are filling up C:\Windows\System32 on one of my domain controllers (a 2008 R2 DC).
Any easy way I can figure out what's spitting the log file there?

I can't open it because it's so large, unless there's another viewer I should try and use...?

There's no IIS running locally.

One of the log file names is "IN1602.log"
