Welcome to Apple Discussions
I suggest downloading WhatSize.
If you choose to delete something via WhatSize, be careful! WhatSize shows "invisible" files that on would not normally. Messing with these files can cause complications with your system software.
I hope that helps,

Hey YVR ...
I know what you mean about checking info that way. Problem is that all those don't add up to what is being used. It tells me I have 5.78GB left of a 37.14GB HD. However, when I add up all the items say on the left side of my finder (pictures, desktop, account name, music, etc...) I get only a little under 30GB. So where is the other 7GB? It's like there is used space somewhere that I can't find. It tells me that the info under my account name is using 6.83GB. How can my account use that much space?

Currently Being ModeratedFeb 20, 2006 10:43 PM (in response to atomicluck)Can you please let us know which responses helped the most or solved your thread. The reason is so one can use this post as future reference. I noticed that you marked this thread as solved, can you let us know what helped. You can also award points to the users that helped (two) and the one that (solved). This is not that important, but it shows the quality of answers by the number of points one user has (when levels are put back. They are based on the number of points from being awarded helpful or solved). As I said, the points don't matter that much, it is know which post helped that does.
