My problem is that the log files in the NTDS folder are not deleting and now
that folder is around 6GB which not normal. I have log files that are from
3 months ago.

I have looked everywhere but I don't know if it is safe to delete the log
files or not and
I desperately need the hard space.

I have event id 0 NTDS ISAM. NTDS (300) Unexpected Win32 error: 0x20 in the
Directory Services Event Viewer.

This error started the same time the log files started building up.
