The log file in WinSCP is very large after running, how can I reduce it?

My bat code is below:
del /f /s /q example.log
"C:\Program Files (x86)\WinSCP\winscp.com" /script=SyncRemoteScript.txt /log=example.log
pause
The log file in WinSCP is very large, about 22Mb after running, please help me get the small log file, hope not greater than 1Mb.
The log file should include error information, the number of uploaded files, etc.

You didn't tell us much about the log. So we cannot know if the log is large because WinSCP does many operations or because you have enabled debug logging inadvertently.

Use /loglevel to change the log level.

You should isolate your script from GUI configuration, so that logging setting changes in the GUI do not impact your script:

You might also consider using XML logging:

The code change below:
del /f /s /q example.log
"C:\Program Files (x86)\WinSCP\winscp.com" /script=SyncToRemote.txt /xmllog=example.log /xmlgroups
pause
the log file reduce to 428kb. Is /xmlgroups set correctly?
Thanks reply.
