What is the best way to manage the logs files in Exchange Server 2016? I'm not referring to the log files in the Mailbox folder which are managed when the mailbox is backed up.
I mean the LOGGING folder which has 80 folders with various types of logs.
So specifically, is there settings in Exchange to limit the size or dates of these?
Can all of the logs in these folders be purged after a set time period, which I can do with a script? Or do some of them need to be kept indefinitely?
I have found a little about this that says certain of the folders inside the LOGGING folder can have the contents deleted, but I'm wondering about doing all of them.

Thanks for any guidance on this.
