Default Anyone who knows where the logfiles are Mac

Hey guys

Anyone who knows where the folder that sometimes can contain lots of huge files from PT is licated? Its log files and can take up hundreds of GB if one is unlicly. Last time we deleted them it was over 80GB free'd up on the main SSD drive.

Any help much appreciated

Was it a massive amount of small files? Was it a few massive files? I have seen .dlog files get ridiculously large when something goes wrong during an elastic audio operation.

It was lots of files. Maybe 100+ files and they totalled over 80GB together hehe

Thank You soo much for the help. Got over 85GB back from one of the MBP's main drive for better use on the road than keeping log files dor nothing

The PT Prefs trashing thing I do deletes log files optionally too. Obviously pretty easy to do manually but having it all in one place can be handy.
