Hi Asyn,

was bedeutet das denn?

Hat das vielleicht etwas mit der Lösung/besseren Handhabung dieses "Problems" zu tun:

Ganz genau, Sky...!
Die manuelle Kürzung ist in Zukunft nicht mehr nötig, geht jetzt alles automatisch. :)
Schönes Wochenende,
asyn

PS: Sorry für die späte Antwort. (Urlaub  8))

Hmmm, meine setup.log ist mittlerweile wieder 4 MB groß.
Ab welcher Größe/Nach welcher Zeit/Nach welchem Kriterium wird sie denn automatisch gekürzt? ???

Ich frage nur nach, weil ich mal überprüfen möchte, ob die neue Funktion auch reibungslos funktioniert.
Und bis jetzt habe ich seit dem letzten Update noch keine diesbezüglichen Aktionen des Programms feststellen können.
