Look into /var/log for a list of files like this example:

cron.0.bz2              maillog.1.bz2 
cron.1.bz2              maillog.2.bz2 

Note the bz2 extensions and the files that have digits  at the end.
Chances are you may have many. You can delete these if you wish.

Also, look around the dirs within /var  You may have something logging such as 
a core dump.

Just a thought.
