I found a thread (https://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2045728&page=2) with the follow ing proposed solution (I have not personally tried it):


"I recently got Asus ZenPad 10 and was having space exhaustion issues due to mtklogs.
This is how I fixed it:
Click 7 times on build number found in softwareupdate option in settings to enable developer options.
Go to Developers options under settings menu and change 'Logger Buffer sizes' to off. "

i tried it on first day it doesn't work. for you to verify delete mtklog folder & use the phone for a day or two again u will see mtklog folder getting filled up. I also tried uninstalling the app using pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.lenovo.openmtklogger which also doesn't work.

 

only hope is either lenovo provides an update which disables unnecessary logging or if we can get root access to modifiy config file ourself

Today I checked again & found that mtk has taken more than 2.5 GB it's not acceptable it should be sized within 1 GB else it's extremely problematic for internal storage of k8 plus

1 GB ??? seriously ??? 

This problem must be resolved properly , keeping log at this level is really unacceptable.

Lenovo do something fast.
