Symptoms

Microsoft BitLocker Administration and Monitoring (MBAM) Recovery and Hardware Service.svclog and ComplianceStatusService.svclog grows rapidly and fills the entire disk space.

Cause

In Microsoft BitLocker Administration and Monitoring server, we gather informational and activity tracing information for WCF and MBAM services. This causes the svc log file to increase rapidly for MBAM Services.
