Clearing Log Files

Could you please specify which all directories carry's the additional non operational files which can be deleted to reduce the disk usage.

My instance is consuming more space and I can find a lot of disk space has been consumed by confluence Home directory/logs . Lot of them are pretty old and some have .current extension.

Confluence Application Directory /logs  : this folder has lot of files in below format: catalina.YYYY-MM-DD.log , confluence10042019-stdout.YYYY-MM-DD.log,          gc-2019-10-05_00-40-12.log.0.current , localhost.YYYY-MM-DDlog


Confluence Application Directory /temp : folder also have lot of files.

Also i have the old versions of the confluence which are not being used any more. Can i remove the temp files and log files from there?

Would it be fine to delete few old files directly from the OS  ? 

Would deleting any thing from these directories affect the audit logs ?
