Actually you are getting this error because you can’t delete all log files. Log files are important files which can be present at different locations. It can be present in your document, uninstall settings of any application and so on. Here your file FXSAPIDebugLogFile.txt is a log file related to your Fax application which is must have app to use Fax machine, I guess. Although it is not safe to delete the log files but Since you are asking the procedure to delete the log file then follow the following process to do that:


  • Go to Control Panel
  • Click on Program
  • Click On “Turn Windows Features On and Off”.
  • Navigate to Print and Document Services
  • Now uncheck that option
  • Now click Ok to confirm
  • Restart the computer

After the Restart, you would be able to delete that file without any problem but still I will suggest you not to delete this file as it can hamper the working of your Printer and Fax.

Hi

 

That file is created by Windows itself. You don't need to delete it.

If it's in any temp folder...emptying such folders (using Windows or a 3d-party utility) should remove it.
