Does IJ cleanup old thread dumps ?

Does IJ cleanup old thread dumps located under .IntelliJIdea8x\system\log ?

I am getting quite a collection and have been manually deleting them to save disk space.

Hello Rob,

Does IJ cleanup old thread dumps located under
.IntelliJIdea8x\system\log ?

I am getting quite a collection and have been manually deleting them
to save disk space.


Yes. Thread dumps for the last 10 sessions are stored; older ones are deleted
automatically.

The directory list looked like might have met the "10 last sessions" criterion.  But there are hundreds of threadDumps.  7.2G doesn't seem clean to me.  I haven't executed my own code in the IDE ever.  Hoping that IntelliJ2017 isn't so angry on the occasions I use it.
