I am using Excel ver: 16.42 with Microsoft 365 subscription on MacOS High Sierra. Recently I was analysing my hard disk space and noted that Excel's log file occupied almost 15-16 GB. It was located in /Users/____/Library/Containers/com.microsoft.Excel/Data/Library/Logs folder.
I closed excel and deleted the .log file and restarted my Mac. After reopening Excel, the log files got created again and it started expanding and reached 9 GB in a day! What is creating such a huge log file and how do I stop it?
