I to delete logs I don't need. But I know how I got the logs and what they are.
I also about once a week clean out Event Viewer.
I delete logs stored in all my security programs after scans every now and again.

I still don't know how one can get 200 plus GB of logs. Then again I always kept things clean so I wouldn't know.

System mechanic is definitely one to avoid, I like others don't believe in one stop fix all programs they are generally junk and can have severe side effects

If you wish to look at event viewer simply type event into your start menu and it will appear, there are several lists/sections/sub menus that you can scroll through to look at different kinds of logs/errors
Its worth mentioning though that it is normal to see many many entries listed as errors and warnings on a perfectly healthy machine so don't be too concerned

D: shows very little space left, recovery all I found in it
D: shows little space left, all we saw in it was Recovery and we couldn't open it to view files. Is this normal? We have made a Recovery disc for computer. We keep getting notifications stating very little disc space available and the C: has plenty of space available. We're confused.
