I have a situation where my root partition is very tight and I thought my activity on the area didn't require large file, but I was wrong, I'm loosing couple hundreds of Megs in a relatively short time.
What I'm doing is developing web site on /var/www/htdocs extensively where its size is only increasing couple Megs more since its first creation.
Question is, how can I detect the location of file accumulation? I checked the /var/logs dir but I didn't find anything that was large.
It is completely safe to delete these folders. They are not used for storing any data, although I wouldn't delete them with KDE running....
Unfortunately there is no way to prevent this from happening in the future, except manually clearing it.
VI Session files:
These are just session caches from vi... If you're comfortable not having them around, I'd toss them. One thing, though, move them first and make sure functionality isn't lost in your dev environment/preferences... Sometimes tools rely on these things that are supposed to be tossable...
