I don't see any problem with this setting

There are two options:

Either you configure dedicated SQL server and store NPS accounting setting to point logs to SQL server
OR
you can choose any one of below settings for log files:

"Create new log file monthly"
OR
"When log file reaches this limit"

Then you can backup older log files and can simply delete it from server

"When disk is full, delete older log files" setting is there to avoid NPS from functioning if you choose "never (Unlimited file size)"

Attaching here screen shot
NPS Log Settings
In current situation, if you have only one file with 30GB, you may stop NPS service, copy  \ backup log file elsewhere, delete file from NPS server and change log setting as above screen shot and start NPS service to save disk space
