I don't know what is wrong, on one day hard drive started filling up (I don't download / install / unzip anything)

I know how to use shell

in system logs I get so many Apr 12 02:53:09 roboo.local WindowServer[189]: CGXGetWindowWorkspace: invalid window id: 168 Apr 12 02:53:09 roboo.local WindowServer[189]: CGXGetWindowWorkspace: invalid window id: 162 Apr 12 02:53:09 roboo.local WindowServer[189]: CGXGetWindowWorkspace: invalid window id: 15e

And found I have something like this... Volumes/Macintosh HD/Volumes/Macintosh HD (looks recursive)

Have you by any chance signed up for Amazon Drive?

No never, I have dropbox, MEGA but it's not running at /private/var/log/asl logs are growing fast... but I never had problem with hard drive (I think the value of free space never changed when I don't download anything etc... and system must be logging before too)
