Running SQ for a  long time, the folder become more bigger.

 

Today I find the size of  SQ’s folder is 31GB.

 

Most of this is  log files.

 

So, I del the log files. (every str file have been saved to another partition’s folder)

 

We can restrain the log folder’s size, by set the logging setting (Tools-Options-General).  The default value is 30 days?

 

But I have a question. Is it necessary that let SQ save log files?  I would like to hear Mark’s voice or other experienced users’s viewpoint.

No, it´s not necessary at all. I delete them before EACH and every start of SQ, via a .bat file that first deletes the logs, then starts SQ.

eastpiece, most of the time you won’t need it but once something goes wrong it can be quite handy to have them saved. I personally switched it off

 

munchie, I forwarded your forum question to Mark. He needs to check it and should let you know

So, we can uncheck “save log messages to file”.

thanks to your experience, geektrader and tomas262.
