I have a Macbook Air - Mid 2013.


I seem to have a problem with the Movies section on my Mac. I cannot get rid of those 18,5 Gb which are always there even though my Movies folder is completely empty.

You can check the Screenshot attatched to this post.


Any suggestions of how to deal with this issue are more than welcomed.




P.S. I've tried all the Disk Management programs like: Disk Inventory X, Grand Perspective and a bunch of other applications. And yes, the Trash is empty.

    It may be an indexing problem, so first reindex the OS X partition.


    To do it, open System Preferences > Spotlight > Privacy, press the + button and add Macintosh HD. Then, select Macintosh HD and press the - button. After that, reindex will start, so just wait until the process finishes, and have a look at  > About this Mac > More Info > Storage.
