How long do you keep raw access logs?

I have almost all of the logs dating back to the beginning of all of my sites. Either on the server or stored on my computer.

I can't say that I use the old ones for anything but was wondering if there is any reason that I might need to keep them. I have six years worth for at least one site.

Would prospective buyers (for the site) be interested in them?

I'm sure size may matter in this case, but how long do you keep old logs?

seems after one year is the best to download (BACKUP) and remove them. Another option is to keep 1Q, 2Q, 3Q, 4Q and remove them continually.

Hope it helps. Another left option is only to keep and issue of server space may arise.
