Keychains Folder Huge

I was looking over my harddrive usage using daisydisk when I came across my "keychains" folder and its 79.7gbs. Has anyone seen anything like this? is it safe to just delete the whole folder? I know all my passwords so I can always input them again for each site not a big deal.

If you know your passwords, it won't hurt anything. Not sure exactly what would have caused that, but assuming it's just the keychain files in there and you haven't just accidentally saved something there, it shouldn't hurt anything.

Thanks,
when i look on daisydisk its a bunch of 133kb files and im almost 100% sure i havent saved anything there but its weird when i go into the file nothings there all blank but if i "get info" it says 79.gb im gonna delete it tonight. I have a feeling its going to take forever.

keychain item size

I was wondering how big the Keychain Folder under Mac OS 10.8 is supposed to get. After nearly running out of disk space on my 2011 MBA, I figured the Keychain folder was taking up near 20 gigs of precious disk space.

A deletion (as recommended by an earlier thread), seemed initially to solve the problem. However I soon realized that most new keychain files was taking up to 5.9 of MB.

Something seems seriously wrong. Please open Terminal (in Utilities) and paste in

Code:
ls -hl ~/Library/Keychains/
I get

Code:
total 384
-rw-r--r--@ 1 myname  staff   165K Jan 19 06:02 login.keychain
-rw-------  1 myname  staff    23K Jan 11 15:58 metadata.keychain
Two files, 188K total.

What do you get?

Hi,
a couple of days after deleting the folder, surfing the web and re-saving log-in forms I get this baby (180 entries).

Folder keeps growing day by day almost exponentially. By now I have 180 entries.
Seems for my MAC, HAL 9000, security is paramount. If this goes on keychain will soon consume my entire disc.

Where's the reset for this issue?

Seems for my MAC, HAL 9000, security is paramount. If this goes on keychain will soon consume my entire disc.

Where's the reset for this issue?

Please open Keychain Access (in Utilities). In the Keychain Access menu, choose Keychain First Aid. Enter your password and do Verify and then Repair. Maybe your login keychain is damaged.

To quickly remove the login.keychain.sb-* files, copy and paste the following into Terminal:

Code:
rm -f ~/Library/Keychains/login.keychain.sb-*
A restart afterwards wouldn't hurt. Neither would repairing permissions.

Two files, 188K total.

What do you get?
Just as a comparison... this is essentially what I get, with 10.8.2.
