Although the image is missing...when it comes to servers and files to delete make sure to keep a backup somewhere....especially if the files are located in Program Files (both 32+64),ProgramDATA.Appdata

Well it seems that there is another solution...
Logon to your Sharepoint...-->Operations-->Diagnostic Logging --> Options for Trace log....change the setting for logging...

Also you can restrict Trace log disk space usage...eg. 2 GB...
If you have another disk you can also redirect Logs to it.

John TsioumprisSoftware & Systems EngineerCommented:
better Let sharepoint take care of it...
Change the values e.g to 5 days...restrict to 2-3 gb and i guess on the next run the daemon run it will act accordingly....UNLESS there are orphaned files....like logs from a previous version....you can identify them by having huge time differences...for example 1 month back...

Also check for orphaned files...files that haven't updated for long time..

Make sure your backups are 100% successful. When you do full backups and they are successful, exchange and sharepoint transaction logs should get truncated automatically. Besides that you can change the settings so the logs are written elsewhere, for example to another disk (not C:).

Also run the Cleanup wizard. With it you can safely cleanup the disk from unneeded OS files.

Disabling Jobstimer events and trace logs to 3gb it helped to resolve this issue.
