Ramblings of a Home Server User

June 17, 2007

Are you experiencing huge log files on your WHS?

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tom @ 3:03 pm

If so, here are directions on how to cleanup those logs.

  1. Logon to the Administrator Desktop
  2. Click on Start -> Run
  3. Type “cmd” (without quotes)
  4. Type “net stop qsm /yes” (without quotes) —- This stops all the Home Server services and allows you to delete log files.
  5. Click on Start -> Run
  6. Type “%qlogs%” (without quotes)
  7. Delete log files that are taking up large amounts of space
  8. Restart server and you should be good to go.

  1. Thanks for posting some instructions for dealing with log files gone berzerk. I had a 15GB log file yesterday I had to delete. What’s causing the log files to suddenly go from under 1MB to filling the system partition? I assume it’s a known bug since there’s a workaround for it posted.

  2. I am so proud of you son. This is a great web site and as the roll out of Home server happens I am sure you will get lots of feedback.
