After installing ML in July I noticed that disk files as reported by Disk Utility went from a few hundred thousand to over 900k which surprised me. Also the incremental clone time using SuperDuper went from about 5 minutes to 18 minutes.


To address the large increase in the number of files I used a program to purge all the non English localizations which reduced the 900k to about 700k. Then out of curiosity I started monitoring the disk file count every day. To my total suprise the file count went from about 700k to about 270k (See Graph).



I haven't done anything that would significantly impact this. Also my total disk has remained constant Used: 30.4G, Capacity: 640G .


Any thought on what is going on here?
