    Hi, WilliamP

    You can delete your old tds logs if you what.

    Open TDS. Click TDS>View logfile>. Then delete the old folders by the month.

    I use CryptoSuite Secure Delete.

    Inside the folders that is, let the month names stay, empty if you like.

    Guess so, normally it is. If you used exactly the same names so TDS knows where to save them :)

    Hi, WilliamP

    You did no harm when you deleted the folders.
    But Jooske is right, if you are not sure then alway backup before you delete

    The old folders are of little use anyway. [Just old logs, with Infomation if you need it]

    For when you Reboot TDS will make a new folder and a log starting at [with] the time of TDS next start.

    Hmm i meant open a month folder and delete the older content you no longer want, so the folder itself with that name stays up, as i was not sure if TDS would re-create the monthnames folders again at a next reboot, and i'm rather sure then sorry :)

    These files are but txt files and don't grow too big anyway unless we let lots happen on our main console.

    Hi, Jooske

    I tried it before I posted Jooske. [Alway's willing to be the Guinea Pig before I post :D]

    TDS made a New Apr[April] Folder after I rebooted and I took a look in the Logs, Just to be sure I was not telling WilliamP do something be Damaging to TDS.

    Yeah, it sounded as if you spoke of experience, else you would have written something like "i suppose TDS will ......." :D Anyway, guess it's clear now. Was looking in those folders myself recently and thought why am i keeping all those old logs in which i never look and would not remember what they could serve for; the strange life experience is however every time i start decluttering i need the stuff back i just have thrown out even though before one can't imagine what use it could have in any way. Decided those logs don't take really much space so will look into that another time again. Maybe could delete them on a daily/weekly basis if nothing strange has happened so nothing exceptional is in those main console logs at all.
