    I just love my new MBP that came with Apple SSD in it. However, I have only 128GB SSD so I don't want to fill it up too quickly. Today, I deleted tons of old emails in the Mail app since I remember that doing so can free up some space in HDD in my iMac. Surprisingly, I found that after I deleted those emails and emptied the trash, the used space of SSD went from 40.45GB up to 40.51GB :confused:. That was not the end of the story because 10 minutes after that the used space came down to 40.48GB :eek:. I monitored the used space of SSD by istat pro, if that matters.

    Any idea of what was going on in SSD?

    Maybe your RAM is being swapped to the SSD. Have a look at the SWAP size via iStat Pro or Activity Monitor > System Memory.

    Are you running virtual machines? I have seen VMware Fusion do that to me a few times. I reboot usually fixes things right up.
