    From inside FD's GUI, I don't think that you have any other choice but to delete all log entries or keep them all. Someone will be happy to correct me if I'm wrong.

    EDIT: Please note that I am lucky anough to be using the full version (aka Pro) and I'm not sure about your FD Rescue...

    Some of the logs are dated from 2008

    I was forgetting that there is an Options' setting where you can settle for a number of days (between 1 and 999) to make FD flush its old logs everyday.

    EDIT: spelling errors

    With FD-Rescue this option is under "General" and its the only option related to the logs.
    So log files can only be deleted manually from the "Actions" menu (Clear log...).

    Cheers

    Yes, those logs are one thing, the ONLY thing, about FD that has never worked for me; I always have to manually delete them.

    I have heard a few incidents about the logs not clearing. Most are having no issues, but a few do. Looks like a possible bug that needs to be addressed in the logging routines. As we are moving forward with some form of the ISR engine (nope, not going to give away the upcoming announcement just yet) I may be reaching out to those having this issue. Thanks in advance.

    btw: Logs are stored as text files under the $ISR\$LOGS folder. Deleting some or all will not cause any harm to FD-ISR.
