So I have an OS X machine running desperately low on hard drive space. I ran DiskInventory X and found that
is taking up 2GB of space. I understand that this file is used to hold the contents of RAM or some such thing, so in the event of sudden battery or power loss, no data will be lost.
If I start the machine up in Target mode, and wipe that file out, is there any bad repercussions outside of risking data loss in the event of a crash?
