Move, rename, or archive FMS 12 log files?

Your post

We have a pe_application_log.txt file that has grown to huge proportions somehow (2.6GB, yes G). Our server is configured to store only 100MB of data, both in the IWP settings as well as the general server settings.

I tried to rename it so that it, hoping it would create a new file, but it continued to add new data to the file I just renamed.  Is there a prescribed way of archiving the existing file off and having it just make a new one?  (I have plans to export the old data to a new file and then just wipe the existing file, but that seems like an awkward method.)
