I wanted to reset my iPhoto library and remove all places, faces and events recognized from the pictures, so I copied my iPhoto library to a hard drive and then deleted it and emptied the trash. Copied the data to iPhoto again and took a look. The library was exactly the same. When I saw my activity monitor I realised there were just 12 gigabytes remaining in my hard drive (I'm using a 128GB Macbook Air) and before doing all this there were 47 gigabytes remaining. My iPhoto library is about 35GB, and I think I didn't replaced the library, I duplicated it. I'd really like to know if someone can help me finding the other library and deleting it, because I'm getting out of space in my mac.

MacBook Air, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)
