hey everybody
i recently started school and im going to start filling my documents up with school work. today i opened up the folder and there were already a bunch of documents like REXDLL 060801 234120.log. there are quite a few of these, i dont know what they are there for, anyone know? if anything id like to have them into a folder, but i dont know what program is doing this. at least i can move the directory into a new folder so it looks a little organized.

heres a picture

no paralells or that sort of ****. all my apps eh? lol i guess i can make you a list
also do you remember telling any program to log? let it be for networking, backing up, etc etc? (well, id imagine if you remembered any log you requested, you'd know where to go... so this is prob not the case)

and when did you start noticing the problem, what's the earliest of the log, and what did you install around that time (and yes, i still want the list of the apps :D

do you use filevault?

provided i dont use logic... go to preferences of logic, and see if there's any setting related to logging... i'd imagine the logs can be deleted, but i wouldn't delete them w/o knowing who logged. they aren't big right, just annoying?
