IIS logfile retention

Björn Pahlen

Recommended Posts

Hi everybody,


today our monitoring system reported low disk space on our Passwordstate system. A deeper analysis showed that a huge amount of disk space (> 19GB) is used by IIS logfiles.

Relevant path \inetpub\logs\LogFiles\W3SVC2

Are those logfiles relevant for any kind of auditing wihtin the system? Or can we just delete all files except the time range we want to keep (e.g. 30 days) ?


Kind regards,

Hello Bjorn,


No those log files are not relevant/used by Passwordstate at all, and you can delete them if required.


Also maybe check if someone has enabled detailed logging in IIS, as we've never had reports of logs files being that large as well.
