    I was recently clearing space for my friend when we noticed that the private folder on her drive was 10gb. Turns out all that space was being taken up by the file "windowserver.log". What is this file? My computer's windowserver.log is only 4mb.... Is this a critical file, or is it just a log that can be deleted???

    I'd just delete it...every once in a long while a log file will just run away like that.

    You're welcome to take a look at it and see if you can figure out what happened, but it's probably more trouble than it's worth unless it happens again.
