How to disable Disk Logging

Postby jimerb » Wed Jan 11, 2023 12:22 pm

I found my logging folder to be 200GB today. I didn't realize it was taking up that much space on my 1TB ssd.

I can't seem to find a way to turn that off or allow it to "auto-roll" to a certain size.

I see a tab logging detail setting in the advanced section. Will that control disk logging as well?

How can i disable disk logging? It made like 20,000 files that are 10mb.

thx.

What version are you using?

The logs should be broken into chunks of logs and they should be self-purging.

I'll have to look to see if you can disable it.

I can confirm the log folder isn't self purging.

I'll get it into the next beta.

Might be this week.

I forgot about this and ran out of disk space on my ssd because of the logs.

i just put B4 on and it cleaned them out. Thanks for fixing this.

Are there any settings to control how big the log folder gets? Mines about 4GB right now which is way smaller than it was but still kinda big for stuff I don't need.

6.91 B4 or 5 has the fix. The current 6.91 beta is the latest.
