Revit Journal Folder getting clogged up and very big?

Mine was at 3.2 gb today (see image):

This is just a little reminder to periodically check your journal file folder and delete any old backups and journal files.

    Could it be the 'way' you are accessing the folders?
    "CSIDLs provide a uniform way of identifying and locating special folders, regardless of their name or location on a particular system... Each special folder has a unique CSIDL assigned to it. For example, the Program Files file system folder has a CSIDL of CSIDL_PROGRAM_FILES, and the Network Neighborhood virtual folder has a CSIDL of CSIDL_NETWORK."
