    Do you have iDisk turned on? I had that happen to me several months ago on my other iMac and Apple said that they have had problems now and than with iDisk doing that. iDisk completely maxed my HDD. When I shut it off and deleted the extra crap it was fine.

    Go to system preferences and click .Mac and than iDisk and see if it is on. If you don't have a .Mac account you don't have it on. You can also do a search on this board by typing in something like hard drive
