The minimum for the current main project is about 550 MB. The reason that the space used has been going up will be the folders relating to old projects - you can identify the current one from the work tab, the others in the CPDN project folder of the BOINC disrectory can be deleted if you are short of space.

The place to delete things are the boinc/project/climate... folder. Anything in there that is not running currently under your work tab can be either backed up or deleted. I keep mine backed up just for the slim chance they may want the data at a later date.
