After googling Windows Log CBS, it seems this is an issue. The folder is 16.9 GB and half created after March 2017. How do I handle these logs? Delete?

It's not something I've come across before. As always - ensure you have a backup before making changes. This link here seems to give a procedure for fixing it.

Thanks for the link Chris. I will think on this a bit before I delete anything.

I have a tech coming over tomorrow to look at the situation. Hopefully he can get me through Aug. I have a project I promised someone and a bunch of photos to edit for a family member. I am now down to 15G of free space. After I deliver my projects, I am going to get a larger SSD. This one is past the 3 year warranty.

Mom I hope your tech resolves the issues for you. I would be interested in what their conclusion was regarding the drive. Also the price of SSD drives keeps going down so happy hunting.

Cheryl could you check if your folders for Documents, Pictures, Video, Music etc. are on your C: drive. Windows creates those folders by default on C: , but it is possible to move them to a different drive. It's a pain in the neck to do, but necessary if you have a SSD.

Sidd, thanks. I will start a new thread when I am ready for a new SSD.

Gerlinde, good thought. My Documents is routed to my media drive. I did double check a few folders, music a few Mb, videos empty, downloads empty that are on my C drive. I keep my Downloads folder on my D drive tidy saving things to the appropriate folders.

That's one way to do it. You can also right click the folder to get to Properties, if you see a Location Tab on the top you get the option to move the folder to a location of your choice. Windows 10 is better in that regard, it gives you a choice where you want you folder to be during setup.

Happy to report that I have now 138 GB free space. The cbs persist files generated was due to a failed Windows update sometime ago. Besides generating those large files there were other files generated in one of the temp folders. Turned off hibernation too. Had a few sketchy files that were deleted. System cleaned. I will keep an eye out on the free space and if the cbs persist files start generating. :TU:

Thanks karri, the 138 GB free is freeing. Things are running a lot smoother especially in Photoshop. I think I will hold off on the new SSD. It is past the 3 year warranty so may push it another year.
