Between Jan 23 and 28, you had various diagnostic logging enabled. You should disable it in the advanced setup -> tools -> diagnostics. Alternatively you might have enabled it via Help and support -> Details for customer care. Advanced logging should be enabled only for the time necessary to reproduce a particular issue and must be disabled then. When activated, a yellow notification pops up in certain intervals notifying you about that.

Feel free to delete the files in the Diagnostics folder.

Bleachbit or CCleaner, with Winapp2, works great to keep those Eset logs from building up. No problems here, doing this.
I can keep diagnostic logging enabled or clean them when needed. Must be done in safe-mode.
Wouldn't recommend the latter, due to the take over from Avast (google to see)

ESET can do that for itself , after amount of days it can clean up logs , you can edit that in settings also to how many days you prefer.

What happened with bugsbunny that he had opened diagnostic logging for few days , that's why it generated so much logs.

Yeah I moved onto System Ninja a few months back because of concerns with Ccleaner. I do think Ccleaner is still probably one of the better looking and feature heavy ones though.

Also as Marcos has said unless you know what you are doing or have problems, these logs don't really need to be enabled.
