    Unable to delete FXSAPIDebugLogFile.txt in windows vista?

    The file FXSAPIDebugLogFile.txt is actually located at C:\Users\Ravi\AppData\Local\temp. I was trying to free up the space on my hard disk to install windows 7 in it. I was deleting all unnecessary files successfully but when I tried to delete FXSAPIDebugLogFile.txt, I was not able to delete and a message was displayed “The action can't be completed because the file is open in windows explorer”. I checked in the Task Manager but it was not present there. Why this is happening and How can I delete this file.

    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.

    Hello

    This issue is related to the Windows Fax and Scan service.
    If you want to disable this service, then go to Control Panel > Programs and Features > Turn Windows Features On or Off

    Under Print and Document Services, you must look for Windows Fax and Scan.
    Now unchecked it, click OK, and then restart again.
    You can now delete FXSAPIDebugLogFile.txt

    Hope this info helps you.

    dear friend,

    FXSAPIDebugLogFile.txt is basically a log file & related to the FAX programs on your computer.

    It'll be better if you don't delete log files from your computer.

    You don't have to worry about that files-these are not virus files & takes negligible space in your system.

    Sometimes log files holds up the basic information of any program.

    As per example some log files has the uninstalling string, and some contains the information about path between setup & shortcuts.

    But if you still want to delete these files then follow the steps given below-

    Click on the Start button.

    Go to Control Panel.

    Under program & features option, turn OFF the Turn Windows Features On or Off option.

    Uncheck the box beside Fax & Scan service option under Print and Document service option.

    Then restart your computer & check for the changes.
