Cbs files RRS feed

  • Question

  • Running Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit. I understand one can delete the CbsPersist**.log files, but what about Cbs**.cab files?

  • Hi,

    The SFC.exe program writes the details of each verification operation and of each repair operation to the CBS.log file. The CBS.persist.log is generated when the CBS gets to be around 50 meg in size. CBS.log is copied to cbs.persist.log and a new cbs.log file is started.

    It would be useful only for troubleshooting issues. If you are sure your system is running fine, you can delete these file. SFC.exe will create a new one, next time it is run.
