My MacBook 13 retina has SSD 250GB and as was I had around 15GB of free space

(My iPhoto DB was 125 GB.)


Moved it to an external drive for merging and copying.

After cleaning, when trying to move the smaller DB back, I had too little space avail so I cant move it back..


My free HD space after DB move is 98GB

DB new size is 100gb.

I cant get the DB back!


Whats happening what is taking up my space?

What is expanding?

(Nothin else installed/moved since this happened.)


Thanks for any hints where to look!

MacBook Pro with Retina display, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.4)

    Use an app like Grand Perspective



    to see what's using up the spacee.
