Steps to enable circular logging or prevent such large log files being created by Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ X55 5G Modem

I have had several Lenovo X13 & X1 laptop users whose Windows 10 hard drives have been filled to capacity because of the log files created by the Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ X55 5G Modem.


This program creates log files within this folder: C:\ProgramData\Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ X55 5G Modem\SVClog
 

What are the steps to enable circular logging (so the log files will overwrite older files) or to prevent such large log files from being created by the Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ X55 5G Modem?


Or what steps can be used to set a limit to the amount of space that can be used by these log files or to prevent these log files from being created in the first place?


We load our own Windows 10 image on these laptops & I haven't yet been able to find a way of doing what I have described above.

Are you able to see where the logging settings are enabled?
I think it would either be part of a control panel, or a utility that manages the device I. The task bar..
See if you have a Qualcomm folder in programs ...

I have looked in Windows Programs and Features, the Applications list, in the Start menu, and in the Program Files folders but haven't been able to find anything that says Qualcomm or Snapdragon which is why I have posted this question to try and determine where to find, adjust, or put an end to the application or process that might be creating these log files.

Is there any tool on the system that deals with initiating the connection using the builtin 5G modem?

windows key:
type qualcom
anything?
Type Snapdragon,
Anything?

there has to be a utility for the application where one would potentially specify the Carrier, EIMI, etc..

What information is within the log?
This is the best money I have ever spent. I cannot not tell you how many times these folks have saved my bacon. I learn so much from the contributors.

The only information in the logs is that the connection isn't successful which leads me to believe that this is a cellular or Wi-Fi connection.

Did your firm, sign-up for a broadband carrier?
See whether you disable the modem if not in use through the windows 10 WAN option, or in the bios.

If you expand all options, check devices, disable the Qualcomm .....

None of the laptops with this issue are subscribed to a broadband carrier.

I'll take a look in the BIOS on these laptops next week.

Check the tile, if option in Windows 10 see if it has a wAN option, there has to be some reference in the OS that can disable.

The log entries, are they every so often, I.e. Keeps trying to connect whenever an Internet connection is needed, if the Qualcomm has wan/lan integrated, there should be a utility that one would use to set that wifi, Ethernet is preferred to limit when the wan connection is triggered.

Expand all options and see if there is a wan ".. I.e. Wireless, Bluetooth, etc.
It might be part of the Lenovo tools/app dock options.
