I am not a pro at Mac / OS X. But I know my way around.
I just installed OS X El Capitan. However when I first started up, my harddisk used 30GB with 'other'. With time the capacity just keeps shrinking. If I just stare at the screen, I just see the available space drop and drop. Until it hits Zero Bytes at capacity.
Does anyone know what I can do about this? I cannot seem to find anything on this on Google.
The only thing it returns on my keywords are things like how to remove temporary files, re-index size with Spotlight, Startup in safe mode. None of these things seem to work.

I have sorted on Bytes Written, that does not seem very strange.
As you can see the data Written is around 8.33 GB and a few minutes later already 10 GB,.. I checked; 'sudo fs_usage -f filesys' this keeps trying to get some attribute lists from mdworker? Don't know if that is normal?
@Edit 20:30 07-04-2016 With 'sudo fs_usage -f filesys' I see that the following processes write;
So the private and library grows a bit, however the Core grows massively. I see that it produces a 'core dump' of around 528 mb every now and then. This tells cores is a folder for a core dump;
What/why is this happening? (Like the post I have set the core dump limit to 0 and it seems to have stopped generating.)
