Some odd log files in AppData\Local\TileDataLayer\Database


Recommended Posts

I've noticed the free space on the (small) system drive decreasing and there are some odd log files in C:\Users\[username]\AppData\Local\TileDataLayer\Database, around 4GB of them.

Are they safe to remove? From what search engines have shown, the EDB.log is a transaction log file and related to the Windows Start Menu, but that's it.

I wouldn't normally be concerned with deleting .log files on a personal computer, since by their nature they are just .log files, but those are awfully large for just .log files, and your system seems to be making them pretty fast-like. Might want to try to track down what the heck is generating them (maybe via Process Explorer if you can catch it in the act) and repeatedly stab it with a knife.

How I have existed fills me with horror. For I have failed in everything - spelling, arithmetic, riding, tennis, golf; dancing, singing, acting; wife, mistress, whore, friend. Even cooking. And I do not excuse myself with the usual escape of 'not trying'. I tried with all my heart.

In my dreams, I am not crippled. In my dreams, I dance.

Thank you for the suggestion.

I couldn't pick the process with Process Explorer, but Resource Manager told that the EDB.log and EDB.check are used by the system. So, I backed up the files on an external drive and removed them from C:. The PC didn't crash, and it seems to be fine.

(I will have to do a clean reinstall at some distant point in the future. Somehow, it is easier with work PCs and Windows Autopilot).
