I would like to free up space on my hard drive.  Currently I have 578GB as "other".  Any suggestions how I can attack this?

I neglected to delete emails for years and ended up with 16600 emails in my inbox.  Since I was having a problem with my startup disc being too full, I deleted 8000 of my emails in the inbox and only gained about 4 GB more space.  Usage right now is: audio: 9.49, movies: 130.96, photos: 20.41, apps: 5.63, backups: 0, other: 578.01 GB.  Out of 749.3 GB on the disc I have 4.79 GB free.  I would like to free up more, but could use some advise regarding how I can attack that "other" quantity.


Any ideas?
