I know how to empty event log on windows XP, and then I have a script which cleans the numerous Windows 7 log categories. The windows 7 script looks like this:
wevtutil.exe cl Analytic
wevtutil.exe cl Application
wevtutil.exe cl DirectShowFilterGraph
wevtutil.exe cl DirectShowPluginControl
wevtutil.exe cl EndpointMapper
wevtutil.exe cl ForwardedEvents
wevtutil.exe cl HardwareEvents
wevtutil.exe cl Internet Explorer
wevtutil.exe cl Key Management Service
wevtutil.exe cl MF_MediaFoundationDeviceProxy
But the script receives access denied under windows 8 (even with Administrator account).
1- Is there a better method tho empty Windows 8 log? Or is there any way to make the script work again?
2- How is it possible to increase the event log file size in Windows 8?
