I have a brand new laptop.....well, 3 months or so. a 1TB SSD and a 1TB HDD. It is a Lenovo ThinkPad Workstation Laptop P50 with Xeon processor, 64GB DDR4, a 1TB SSD and a 1TB HDD, Discrete Graphics with 4GB of VRAM & every port you can imagine.
I'm using VMware to separate my graduate school work from my main computer. On the host OS, I have Windows 10 Professional. These are my guest VMs: Windows 10 Education, Windows 7 Ultimate, Windows 7 Pro, Windows XP, Kali Linux, Ubuntu Server, OSX, and some other fun toys.
My SSD is running all of the VMs, but only the Windows 10 Education with a maximum virtual hard drive of 500GB (currently only at 180GB) is located on my SSD. With the OS, games, programs, etc. I eat up another 200GB. So that means I should have at leadt 600GB free on my SSD, but it shows less than 30GB. I used TreeSize to attempt to find the largest files on the SSD and found a 300+GB file called gms.log. The file is located at %systemroot%\sysWOW64\gms.log.
From googling the problem, I found that it could be attributed to Intel Management Engine or Intel Management and Security Application. I uninstalled them but the problem persists.
What am I missing here?
EDIT: I tried deleting the file, but it wouldn't let me.
