In my C main drive, there is a folder titled PerfLogs. Inside it, there's one folder, an Admin folder. However, nothing else exists inside these folders.

Would it be safe to delete the PerfLogs folder? I read that in Vista, the folder is created by the "Reliability and Performance Monitor," but couldn't find any detailed information about the folder. Any thoughts regarding this?

many thanks,
jester1

Hi -

Files are written to c:\perflogs\system\diagnosis by PERFMON and WINSAT (performance index). Vista PERFMON info -

You can delete them if you wish, but HDD space savings will probably be < 25 MB.
