  • I am seeing this as well.  I checked the reg keys and 2 of the 3 were already disabled.  I changed the last one and then restarted the service and it is still creating them.

    My issue now is that we are changing over to Office 365 Exchange and the logs are getting much bigger.  I cleaned them out but it is still doing 2 logs every 2 mins at 1MB each. 

    Anyone have a final solution?

  • Hi,

    I as well as some others out there was not getting any change after adjusting the registry values and several reboots.

    The solution I found that works is ( albeit a little dirty ) is to remove access from the tracing folder (C:\Users\AAD_3a6f082399b4\AppData\Local\Microsoft\MSOIdentityCRL\Tracing) for the AAD_3a6f082399b4 account. Be sure to leave access to other administrators.

    This immediately fixed my issue and no more logs are being generated.

  • I had the same issue, found just deleting the tracing folder worked.

    from another forum.

    "Today I notice that something is eating disk space very fast. With treesize  found that this folder AAD_some numbers\Appdata\local\microsoft\MSOIdentityCRL\Tracing is growing and now it is almost 10 GB. Can I delete this folder or files in it?"

  • A task can be scheduled to run and maintain an acceptable level of logging.

    Task Scheduler

    C:\Windows\System32\forfiles.exe /p "C:\MSOTrace" /s /m *.* /c "cmd /c Del @path" /d -7

    This will delete all files and subfolders in the C:\MSOTrace folder and keep a rolling 7 days.  Cleared over 40GB of drive space and can maintain it.

    Hope it helps.
