Instead of wiping my hard drive clean, I created a new user with admin privileges.  I then logged in as the new user and completely deleted (using secure delete option) the old user.  After a restart, I see that there is no music in iTunes, no pictures in iPhoto, and All My Files shows absolutely nothing.  Which is exactly what I'd expect.  I also looked in the Music, Movies, Pictures folders and found nothing in them (apart from the basic system-generated files).  Trash is empty.  No external devices are connected.  Time Machine is disabled.


Then I go to About this Mac, and click on Storage.  I see 50GB of music, 80GB of images, etc.  Where is this 50GB of audio?  There are no audio files I can find.  I went to Disk Utility and tried the erase free space option -- but this didn't solve anything.  I've tried a simple restart.  No luck.
