Today while restoring my iphone i realised that itunes had made multiple copies of ~3gb of my iphone data. Since my iphone was restored successfully I decided to remove all the backups and make a fresh new backup. After deleting the multiple backups I found that my available disk space had not increased at all. I even went to ~/Library/Application Support/MobileSync/Backup and ther was nothing in there. So I went ahead and made a new backup which consumed additional ~3gb. And just to test if it was only itunes that was doing this I deleted my photos from iphoto ~5gb and even that did not give me back my 5gb. I went to trash and I dont have anything there.
So, here I am confused as to where my deleted stuff is going to because it does not seem like its getting deleted.
Anything that i can do get my space back?
I personally don't need them but then "I" don't Willy Nilly Delete files from my computers.
Others may come along and state that you Shouldn't Fool with Time Machine and or not to turn the Local Snapshots off. I find that completely ridiculous. This local snapshot feature is only enabled on Mac notebook computers, Never on the desktop models, and it has been my experience that these local snapshots ARE NOT automatically deleted sometimes causing the drive to report that it is full.
Bottom line is do what you think is best for you. I have them disabled and it will stay like that.
