Where is the testdisk log file located on a Mac (OS X 5)?

Normally it should be in your testdisk folder.
Some OS don't display the file type.
Then it might be a file called testdisk.

In Mac OSX the log file is at the root of your user directory, called testdisk.log
Hopefully the next person who googles this will have less of a panic than me (log file was 35GB and filled the OS hard drive!)
