The issue you are facing:

Constant log creation in the laptop syncing with the server. More than 10K log files of 101 KB.

It is in a work computer without admin rights. I have to ask some IT to uninstall and install updates.

The logs ara mainly info and debug levels. some warning levels acomplaining about not being able to read an exclude file list:
