Losing SSD space for no reason
When I look at my storage space it will randomly drop throughout the day. A few hours ago it was at 76.9 and now it's at 76.82 and I haven't downloaded anything. Just been using Safari.
What could be causing this? Even though it's not a lot of space I'm losing won't it accrue over time and become a problem?

Also of note, the amount of space you saw disappearing is pretty minimal. Even if you aren't "doing" much of anything on the machine, programs may be writing to the disk. I wouldn't consider this to be a problem unless the free space decreases more significantly.

It can be a useful feature for restoring accidentally deleted data when away from a Time Machine drive.
You can turn Time Machine off then back on to zero out the space if you want.
