Usage logs are not being deleted (SharePoint)


We've ran into an issue recently, where the *.usage logs were filling up the partitition and not being deleted. This usually happens when the SharePoint Timer Service locks up and is not freeing those logs. To fix this problem, stop the SharePoint Timer Service. Sharepoint will then delete the logs by itself (immediately).

If that does not happen, you can delete them yourself. The logs are located here:

%programfiles%\common files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\14\LOGS

You should not have to manually delete these, so check to see if anything else is wrong with your Sharepoint installation.
