Sharepoint Server Logs Eating Up Drive Space



Determined there were 7GB of logfiles in :
C:\program files\common files\microsoft shared\web server extensions\14\


Trying to delete/move failed - access denied because files are locked

Found this excellent article by Doug Allen:

Quick Fix:

On SharePoint Server server - restart SharePoint Timer Service  (services.msc)
Log into SharePoint Central Administration
Go To 'Monitoring'
Go to Timer Jobs - Check Job Status
Find Microsoft SharePoint Foundation Usage Data Import and click on it.
Click 'Run Now'


This should blow out the log files fairly quickly.
