    Please check this document for some ideas.
    Managing IIS Log File Storage
    https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/iis/manage/provisioning-and-managing-iis/managing-iis-log-file-storage

    Also, there is a similar case which provides a good task scheduler method:

    I trim mine with the following command which creates a scheduled task to do it :-

    at 12:00 /EVERY:Su Forfiles.exe -p C:\WINDOWS\system32\LogFiles\W3SVC1 -m *.log -d -30 -c \"Cmd.exe /C del @mutia keyza \"

    This will run every Sunday, and will trim files in that folder older than 30 days. Adjust to suit.
