Junkware Removal Tool by thisisu is one of my primary cleanup apps. However, it has one aspect that is not always wanted: Deleting the System Logs. In some cases I prefer to leave the logs alone for future reference- such as tracking changes in hardware or drivers, or having a record of previous issues in case the issue crops up again in the future.

 

Could there possibly be a alternative? Or maybe a modified version of this excellent program?

You can always create a separate folder elsewhere and copy any logs to that location.

BTW, you can always ask a question (leave a comment) on Thisisu's JRT Blog.

Hello :)

 

Sorry for the very late response. I would like to continue having the program automatically clear the event viewer logs. I understand your reasoning for wanting to keep the logs there though and I would suggest that you review the event viewer logs and/or back them up prior to running the tool. I hope this answers your question. Have a happy new year :)
