2013 error.  Change threshold to 75%.  Give the log its own
partition/drive.  Getting Windows to forward events to your syslog is
easy enough though you may need some third party software.

There are other, better ways to accomplish your goal.  As for the
Windows thing, people end up running Snort on Windows because that is
all they know how to use.

I think it's better to run Snort on an OS you understand than have a
sensor fleet of Snort boxes that nobody in your organization can
maintain that are therefore neglected and ignored.
