Huge AppData file, should I delete it?

This file is over 80 gigabytes large and is overwhelming my hard drive AppData\Local\Avg\log\fmw1

Can I just delete it and then restart my machine?
Why is the AVG programme not cleaning it up itself?

Hello Richard,
Yes, you can delete this folder manually and restart your device.
Unfortunately, AVG will not delete these log files from your PC. We will take this as a feedback for consideration in future.
Thank you.
