Long story short, we had a process that was filling up our log file at an impressive rate (impressive in a bad way). We got everything under control and that particular error log file is no longer the "current" one. However, it's taking up quite a bit of space on one of our drives. So, I'd like to move it to another drive to free up some extra room.
I know I can cycle the log files until the log file in question just gets auto-deleted, but I'd like to keep it around a bit longer so we can look through it and troubleshoot.
Can I manually move the files (such as ERRORLOG.2, ERRORLOG.3, etc)? Is there a super secret sp for doing this? How does SSMS like having those files manually moved without its consent?
