Are you sure this is an issue ?
Normally, cache size may increase/decrease automatically.

Many thanks for your time, can you explain why cache size reduces on the disk?

...because it does not need that much space to store everything that it has to store.

You can use the directives in squid.conf to reduce this behaviour, but another way of describing this is to 'reduce squid's performance'.
