Manage Storage of IIS Log Files – Scheduled Deletion of IIS Logs

Drive Space Full with IIS Log Files / Reclaim Disk Space

Are your Local Drives of your IIS Server running out of space? Have you checked the size of your IIS Logs?

If your IIS was setup by a professional; you would not have to go through this issue. The log files would have been managed appropriately

Ideally I do not see a purpose to keep IIS Log files beyond a period of 1 month. Those older than one month should ideally be removed to prevent disk space issues

I found below posts which will assist you. Before you use the below scripts; please identify the location of your log files

Using Powershell

Using VBScript

By default; you would find them on C:\inetpub\logs\LogFiles\

To verify the location; open IIS and select the Default Website and click Logging

Take note of the path mentioned in the directory field
