    I've had to uninstall PAX because it's creating unbelievably large log files. The file is c:\window\logs\parallels.log. When my home desktop (win7) slowed to a crawl and then started reporting no disk space, I started investigating. It took me a while, but I discovered that this single file was eating up over 90% of a 1.8 terabyte drive. I deleted the file, and all was well.

    I forgot about the problem until this morning my office computer started doing the same thing -- no disk space. Sure enough, there was a 1.6T parallels.log file. I deleted it, and then discovered about 5 hours later that the file had come roaring back -- 44G and counting.

    I've uninstalled the program.

    Has anyone run into this, and do you know a solution?

    (Coincidentally, I got an email from support on another problem that asked me to set the program to "use detailed log messages." I'm not about to do that yet.)
