    I installed iStat 2 days ago and just yesterday I noticed that my HD space slowly decreases; not by a lot. For example, yesterday it said that I had used only 12.06 GB of space. A little later it said 12.07 GB and then 12.08 or 12.09 (I don't remember which one). Today it started in the low 13's and then it went to 13.07 and then 13.09. Currently, it's at 13.17 GB used. Why does it do this? I'm not saving any files, pictures, videos, etc. I'm just on Safari and listening to Pandora and browsing.

    Which cache? The Safari cache? I deleted the Safari history, cache, and Top Pages and I didn't see a difference.

    I cleared the Safari cache and the history. It opened up a little more space. Thanks.

    System cache , user cache, temp files, browser history and cache ... Could be' a lot of things.
    I suggest to install and use a freeware utility like Onyx (carefully)
