Onedrive has a aria problem (and no it's not the casino!)

I woke up to check on my PRTG status, as I'm testing some networking hardware and I got a critical warning that the PRTG server was stopped due to low disk spae and I was like "wtf I have at least 150GB free on my SSD" and low and behold I searched for "gigantic" file size on the windows search and BOOM! A 140gb ARIA DEBUG LOG FILE! I promptly looked to see what it was and it was ONEDRIVE MAKING THOSE YUGE FILES!

So then I have to close onedrive down and do the reset thing that's on this forum: https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_10-files-winpc/aria-debug-log-files-took-all-free-disk-space/15bcfd42-2627-4c03-8342-5c2500f2ec42

and then I manually delete the aria debug files... 


this frustrates me because I lost critical test data from PRTG!!! 

Microsoft has some splaining to do!
