    Hi I just noticed that slowly megabyte per megabyte my Mac's used space is increasing when I'm not downloading or installing anything. I will just leave my MacBook Pro idle and it will increase in used HD space very slowly. Should I be worried? Is something wrong? If there is, how do I fix this? By the way, I have an early 2011 MacBook Pro i5 and 8gb of ram.
