Last time I defragmented, I found out that Dr. Watson has created a 1.04 Gigabyte logfile (drwtsn32.log). Thing is, I'd kind of like some of that Gigabyte back. Is it normal for the log to be that big and can I safely remove/ compress it?

you can delete it. The file is appended after each crash, so it can get quite large. Windows will recreate it as needed
