    Hi,

    What's the purpose of the subject folder mentioned? On my desktop it takes up to 40+Gb (which is about 20% of entire drive ) and files in there are always changing...

    I'm a bit short in a free space, trying to clean up some.

    Is there any chance to somehow cleanup or limit the size of this folder (I guess it's used somehow by the system).

    /lib/udev is not to be messed with :-)

    How did you reach the conclusion that it's using 20 Gb?

    Be careful deleting that. You are likely to need a reinstall.

    Hi, I used a FAR manager under wine to calc folder size. BTW it's not 20Gb, but 20% of drive.

    Thanks, I'll leave it as it is
