I find I have a fair size of my 'C' Drive taken up with all kinds of Logs and Empty Log Folders.

Internet Log Folder alone is 289 files using 116MB of space.

Can anyone tell me if it's safe to delete all Logs and Log Folders (Even the Empty Log Folders)

OR roughly which ones to keep. Performance Folders Etc.

No real problem with space just looking to have less stuff loading at start up.

Imindoors.

If they are simply log files - records of installs, mis-installs, errors and so on - then you should be able to delete all of them if you wish.

However, I'm a bit concerned re your question about files loading at start-up - are .log files loading at start-up? If they are (1) why? and (2) leave well alone.

If these files are not loading at start-up, and you have plenty of disk space, again I would leave them alone.

No, they are not loaded - just "always there". If you want to delete them, do so and they will go into your Recycle Bin. Ensure that all is OK for a day or two then empty the bin.

Good Evening, by the way!
