Hello,

Any particular reason you would like to delete the log.liveupdate ?

The file could surely be deleted, however would be created back again as this file is a log file for Liveupdate.

In your case, you have a disk space issue - I would suggest you to follow these Articles:

The file is 475 mb.  I would like to remove it and let it grow again.  Would that corrupt anything?

Hello,

You surely could delete it. The Log file would be re-generated.

Hi

you can delete the log file.upgrade client to SEP 12 as it saves only one definition insted of 3 definition set.

pete_4u2002's picture

yes, delete it. its strange that it has grown to 475 mb!

This size is unusual, you shall have a look at its content before deletion, in order to find out what is causing it and avoid the problem to reoccur.
