Hello,

Our modern versions (above 4.0.8) truncate the log file to 5 MBs. What version of the program do you use?

Somewhat related to this.

I would like an option not to output log files or to specify the location of them. As far as I can see, there are three log files created right now, USBSafelyRemove, USBSRService, and usr. They are scattered on the C drive. I don't like it when programs do this without the user's permission.

Infimum, thank you for the note. We will consider an option for disabling the log-file in future.
