I run disc cleanup from time to time to recover disk space.
A couple of times, I've noticed a huge amount of disk space taken up by the report files. This time, almost 4Gb.
Has anyone else had this happen to them? Any ideas on what's causing this error bloat?

Go to Desktop Mode, the Flag icon (System bar), Maintenance, then View Reliability History.
This should have a graph of the crashed/frozen apps. These are what is bloating your Error Reporting. Also Updates leave a lot behind (Though I think this gets cleaned up each sunday)
I had a ton becuase of 2 apps, and a sound issue. I deleted them and did a "refresh" of Windows*. Now I only have a few KB worth (Because of MineSweeper)
*Make sure to check the disk utility afterwards if you do a refresh, it will keep the old copy incase which is huge, but you can delete it via the Cleanup too.
