Add a setting to only keep recent update log files

Add a setting to only keep recent update log files

Helpful | Level 5

REASON FOR THIS SUGGESTION: the update log files in

C:\ProgramData\Dropbox\Update\Log

can build up over time, and are NEVER administered/policed off the system by Dropbox. Also, they are of NO USE to the user, as they are not text files, possibly only viewable by some internal or support utility. In any event, product update logs from 2018, 2019 and 2020 are  of no value.

SUGGESTION:

It would be really useful if your product had an option to delete this "update log history", say over 1, 3, 6 or 12 months old files, in a user setting, to stop this unnecessary clutter. Or better still, default to ONLY keep, say the last 3 or 4, and delete any older than 3 months.
