If log files are located in the same directory as the service executables, the log files may be read only, or they may take up too much space on the drive where the executables are located.
This could lead to a situation when Archive Manager services server runs out of free disk space and crashes.
There may be a large number of files in the Archive Manager installation directory (C:\Program Files\ArchiveManager by default) that have the following filenames, these can be deleted or moved to free up disk space:
Archive [Service Name].exe.log.[YYYY-MM-DD]
Archive Full Text Search Service.exe.log.2008-10-24
Note: Disabling logging in the 'C:\Program Files\Quest Software\ArchiveManager\aftermail.logging.config.xml' configuration file will disable logging for the Exchange Utility.
To preserve the logging for this tool, moving the log files to a new directory such as 'C:\Program Files\Quest Software\ArchiveManager\Logs' would be recommended, using the method detailed above.
To clear out older logs from this directory automatically, it is possible to use the ForFiles DOS command: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc753551(WS.10).aspx
For example, the following usage of the command will delete all files in the logs folder that are over five days old: FORFILES /P "C:\Program Files\ArchiveManager\Logs" /D -5 /c "cmd /c del @file"
The command can be scheduled to run daily or weekly via Windows Scheduled Tasks.
