I now my 40GB SSD is small, but I keep everything pretty well managed. All big files stay on my external drives, and small files stay. The other day I noticed I was loosing space, and forgot about it. Tonight, I was sitting and working with the regular apps open (Spotify, Twitter, Chrome, Safari, Twitter, Word) and I got the OS X Error that my start up disk was low. I then went to look and see what the problem was, and I saw I was looking a few megabytes a minute. I started rapidly closing applications and I couldn't understand what was taking up space.

I am still checking now, and I there are no video or large documents on the SSD. I have no idea what could be taking up space. I'm going through my Cache folders now and I can't find anything. What takes up space, or more specifically, a few megabytes a min?

How many apps do you have installed, and what do you specifically save on the SSD?
