check log section some time it increased rapidly of if you have any logging for any service check its log size

You have to strategize how to troubleshoot this in my opinion. Here are my 2 cents for you to find the nasty file/files

1. Files can be small but alot ? Very tricky (Process trapping will help)
2. A file but very huge ? Very easy (A tool like jdiskreport or any OSS gnome/kde tools will help)
