    There are a couple of options when using the script. We are going to use the following options:
    Hits greater than 1000
    Isolating a single day

    @Andy David - MVP

    what about below location :

    c:\Progrtam Files \ Microsoft\Exchange Servere\V15\TransportRoles\Logging\Ews

    is it safe to remove the above log files since it is more than 6GB
