    I thought I would create a drive L, and use it exclusively for log files.

    Because log files are small files, I would reduce the cluster size by formatting the drive using FAT16. T

    I could restrict access, and I would not share the drive.

    I would place all my log files there, and when the drive were 75% full, have it tell me. Then I would archive 100% of its contents.

    If I go through with this it seems I would conserve disk space, keep the information private, and have a comprehensive record of what happen on my system in one place. Does anyone know of a reason I shouldn't do this?
