@GilaMonster you didn't answer my question. all this overly scientific fluff has little to do with the particular task I'm talking about, unfortunately. I believe that in order to truly understand what one can do, one has to know precisely, what one can't do. That's whyt it's a way more interesting subject to me to study then those boring books.

@GilaMonster "What do I need the log file for after that?"

It all sounds very intelligent, but for some reason no one answers the initial question: "What do I need the log file for after that?" (see above)

@GilaMonster, so you don't have your own experience - you just read some posts about some guys, right?

@Martin Smith I think the author had to forcibly detach it. It's not the scenario I'm talking about. In my particular case, everything is a way smoother. it's not even full or whatever. I just don't want to drag it along..

What I mean is purging them. I understand it can't live without a log for a while :)

Thanks for the post. I'm glad I'm not the only guy who don't follow MS's best practices blindly. Just went through the article you point to but didn't find that demo. Could you please point a finger at it. Thanks!

I'm not a fan of immense log files. That's why. Highly controlled environment is my PC running a single app in a single-user mode. I'm a developer of this app. I can do whatever I want with it. Really, please just help me get rid of it. It's not wheels - it's a log.
