Kaspersky's Anti-ransomware-tool creates giant logs

Recommended Posts

We discovered that Kaspersky's Anti-ransomware-tool creates giant logs on every computer we install it on. Could someone help us understand:

 

1.if we delete the logs entirely, will it cause a problem?

 

2.if we delete the logs entirely, will the software re-create those logs from scratch?

 

3.how do you put a size limitation on the log files that are created, or at least set some kind of rule to truncate after it gets passed a certain size?

Hello.

 

The logs themselves aren't the issue, however enormous logs being generated could be a sign of an underlying issue.

While they can be safely removed, it is better to take a look for repeating or similar entries in order to identify the problem. Please let us know if you are able to provide a typical part of such a log.

 

Thank you.

Hi

 

This has also occured to me since Saturday 10 June 2017 and causing major problems with disk space on my drive and slowing down my computer. The logs are too big to open in any text editor. I have a screenshot but there does not seem to be way to attch it to the post.

 

Here are the details:
