i've been having a slight problem with my hard drive the past two days, and i want to know how to approach it. before this all started, i had about 41.5 gigs free on my hard drive, now i'm down to 39 gigs, and i've hardly downloaded anything the past two days (like 100 mb of stuff). i just found out there are a bunch of swapfiles in my private folder taking up over 2gb of space which were created just today, and i suspect was the reason why my hard drive was shrinking. also, i've been hearing a few clicks, presumably from the hard drive (not alot of clicking, just here and there), and i'm hoping my hard drive isn't going bad already (this is a nine month old mac). i've backed up my hard drive in the past week, so i won't lose too much if the stuff crashes now, but i'm more worried about these swapfiles, where are they coming from and how to get rid of them. thanks.
