I've inherited my wife's mb pro. She updated to Lion just before giving it to me. I have now moved my profile over from my old white mb using migration assistant. On my old mac, I used up about 70gb of the drive with Snow Leopard. Now in Lion, I've deleted her profile and deleted a bunch of professional media software of hers, but I'm still using up 130gb! My library alone is 50gb. I don't understand why this is. Should I do a "clean install" of Lion? Is there some way to find out what is taking up so much space?

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.7.2)
