I have had an issue with Other in Storage.. I appear to have about 250 GB of Other, but only about 50 GB of any files, music photos etc.
I have had a good clear out of unwanted material and have still about 250 GB of Other, but my other areas have reduced in size.
I then read somewhere to do a Erase Free Space and that reduced things further.
However Other is still huge and I dont think I can upgrade to a new mac book pro with only 265 of Flash based on my current statistics....Other would take up the whole drive..!
Anyway, I noticed in Disk Utility that I have Macintosh HD listed at the top of the column on the left. THen just below it I have it given again! Exactly the same name..
Does anyone know if this is normal?
Or have I done something wrong in the past that could be taking up huge amounts of space?
I had to reinstall the OS at one point and remember it created a new administrator profile for me, which I then had to delete via my original administrator profile and I only have my original admin profile now.
