    Right Now, while checking my log, I deleted console.log by mistake. How can I restore this? Immediate help would be appreciated.

    How did you delete it? Via the Console.app?

    If so, then it's not gone, it's in /Library/Logs/Console/501/

    (assuming you're the first user on the box)

    I did do it via the app.
    Is there a way to do it without admin priveleges?

    If you erased it via Console.app then I wouldn't worry about it. The file "console.log" still exists (or should). Just it's contents have been erased. Which is not really a big deal considering if you log out and log in, a new console.log is created automatically.

    Oh God!
    Thank you so much for saying that.
    I was panicking so much about it!
    About the it should part, is there a chance that it won't be created again?
    Thank you very much
