Forums - Gaming Discussion - Just deleted a 10GB text file in my Oculus folder

Was looking to free space on my C drive, and saw a 10GB text file called "serverlog something" in the Oculus folder thanks to TreeSize. This is on my PC that had the Oculus program from 3 years ago when DK2 came out, hadn't used it since.

How the fuck can a text file get so big and most importantly, why?

If you read it all you might have found out ;)

That's nothing. I was wondering my old xp laptop was so slow, turned out there was over 250GB in 'temporary' files and internet cache. Sure save it all, I switched to Firefox. It took half an hour to delete it all.



Deleting System 32 should ensure whatever is wrong with your PC gets fixed. Take it from me: I'm the internet.



Are you sure it was a text-file and not some game-data with an extension normally used for text-files?

Maybe you deleted a big game, but that wouldn't be a problem until you want to play it.

Sounds like Oculus did some extensive logging on your machine.

Anyway, reminds me of a few weeks ago when I was desperately trying to find out what caused my SSD to run out of space. It was always too small but I managed. Recently, however, it had started filling up, and I had no idea why. I downloaded a program for checking what's using all the space, cleaned up some stuff that it found, but didn't really find anything too interesting at first. Then I found it: Atom (a text editor, you might say) had been keeping the data from old versions as it updated itself. I think there was more than 10 GB of data there, which isn't really all that much, but it makes a huge difference for my too small SSD.
