Just noticing that the Brucontrol folder in MyDocuments is getting a bit big... 1.2GB...

Most of that (1.1 GB) seems to be in the Data folder with the logs exceeding 100 MB.

Wondering what I can safely delete... Assuming the logs are safe to delete but the data is where the opportunity is...

They delete after 30 days, meaning it only holds 30 days of logs. Mine is over 7gigs!

Yes, the files can grow large. Recording element data every second will do that!

To reduce your file sizes, extend the Refresh Interval (whole interface) or elements' Refresh Multiples (individual elements) if possible. For example, going from 1 second to 2 will reduce log file size to half.

This makes sense to me for the "Logs" folder... is it the same for the "Data" folder?  What happens if I delete the "Data" folder?

The data folder has the recorded data (used to make graphs and can be used for other purposes). The logs folder is for debugging and contains the history of communication with the interfaces.

You can delete either.
