Photoshop Elements eating disk space

Since installing Photoshop elements a few weeks ago I have lost a TON of disk space. I've lost about 30 GB and it just keeps going down even though the files I'm working on are not big at all. 1-2MB each.

I'm running OSX Lion 10.7

I've read a little bit about the scratch disk and use this with Final Cut, however, with Final Cut I can do in and delete the scratch disk files for finished projects. I can't find the scratch disk folder for Elements.

Scratch disk space is recovered as soon as you quit Elements. Scratch space is not persistent.

Did you synchronize some photos to Photoshop.com on another system (such that Elements is now copying them to this system)?
