ESET Endpoint Security Log Files

I started noticing recently that my machine seemed to be using up more disk space than usual. After taking a look around, I found the culprit.

It is located at C:\ProgramData\ESET\ESET Security\Diagnostics\ The file in question is named EpfwLog.pcapng

On some endpoints, this file was larger than 300GB!

What can I do from a policy standpoint to avoid this happening in the future?  For now, I was able to delete the files in question using PDQ deploy, so a crisis was averted.

Appreciate any input on this.

Thanks!

Do not enable advanced logging under Tools -> Diagnostics in the advanced setup. Moreover, enabling it triggers the following notification that pops up in regular intervals until you disable logging to remind you:
