    Hello !

    I have a folder named "bb" which located on the root of Android Galaxy S2.
    Several times a day it creates 300Kb logs with some gibrish like :

    "GgAehRyaVxNjP/GNvPjfONd2VWNbvSalVHpLw3Qbly3RbzsJ1T8ysVpR7w4j0sTj5SwDn049hZc3/zg60PB0/4ZloccnXzkwfSlxKEfJl335cV/YCHcbdczUKfKP7qE8ug3kvsS+0A34CtdFguMUls9ejR7RDEntfrzpOlS1UwE4p/yrhbpUqUkc1AFb3K5uNDEBt3YME2lbiQTMzLcGVEWTywyG6XHqMCn9CHKWxhBhpMjTbE0F81LwT4ppeTWAlKVHPRybReqkfAqAg2lSMdMErlTqGjXVeV7/tgExsbrMsC5x1c6prqtHJZ7x/wbpH073E1lT0Kpp/ScOILQWKQRUvV4t8oPg+MJTsB43wS0="


    I've deleted that folder today and it had several GB of logs !
    But it recreated this folder again and continue to create logs called "mylog.date.log".

    How can I know which application is responsible for that folder and how do I get rid of it for good ?

    Thanks
    Maxim.

    You could try to find the file's name -with the writing app/process- in the phone's log.
    Install 'aLogcat' for recording.

    Thanks.
    As far as I understand 'aLogcat' is real time, and I only get several logs per day - so it would be very hard to monitor after what creates those logs in real time.

    You might export the log files and search in it for the folder's name with an editor on PC.

    Thanks, turned out it was "Snuko", it spamed messages every few seconds and filled logs...
