formatting will erase all including the logs.
how about using file manager to delete the logs? I'm not sure if the correct key is the c:\system\install\install.log or c:\system\data\logdbu.dat

That is a log file only. It is not system file or application file.
Just like in a PC, there are log files that can be deleted or append if another activity is made

yep, the directory you need to be careful with is c:\system\install. If you remove these files, you cannot uninstall the app (unless you reinstall it first)

Also, if you compress this directory (will compress to 25% aprox), the apps will not show in the File Manager!

If you compress this directory with Sdoubler and link it to App Manager, Sdoubler will uncompress the directory first each time App Man is started and the files are shown. Also able to install new applications without first uncompressing directory

i don't see much point in deleting log file.. doesn't clear up much space.. unless u have installed something.. 'questionable' .. but i am still yet to see any of those porno dialers on our phone (and hopefully they won't appear anytime soon!)

I won't delete the .log, you gain nothing with it.

well some 7650 users are "memory-worry-user"
anything that will give them an extra kb is nice for them - it made them say "oh yes... another space or memory was reclaim!"

Stacker and SDoubler compacts contacts like 3kb or more - users like or love it simply because it gave them the feeling that another memory is reclaimed.

If the user want to delete the log file - it does not mean there's a questionable installation.. its just that he is curious or want to reclaim even a single kb that he noticed useless for him. It is just like cleaning up your OS.

For me it is useful but I'm deleting it after I've sent the copy of Log file from phone to PC so that I have a record and I can trace on when did I install/uninstall an app which help me to find out on which app cause something that I dont expect.
