I did that and it shown that the storage is mainly taken up by other...

Here's a link that has some suggestions for clearing up "Other". Also, once you click on that link, you will probably see other discussions of this topic under the "More Like This" section to the right....
Hope this helps!

Very Rarely, a failed backup, a failed copy attempt, or a failed DVD Copy or Burn can leave an abandoned pseudo-Volume on your Hard Drive, taking up space.
Finder > Go > Go to Folder > enter: /Volumes
In the Finder window that opens, all items listed should be Alias files (Icon with an arrow), of size Zero up to at most 16KB.
Anything listed here that is NOT an Alias and is of substantially greater size is an un-needed temporary volume, and can be Trashed to free its space.Mac Pro (Early 2009), Mac OS X (10.6.8), & Server, PPC, & AppleTalk Printers
