Hello Your TLC Girl,

Thanks for reaching out to the Apple Support Communities. I understand you've had some trouble with duplicated data and what appears to be an enlarged amount fo "other" data on your Mac, and I have some information that may help.

Have a look at the article below to learn how to rebuild the spotlight index on your Mac. Doing so will do a sort of inventory of the files on your Mac, and may help clear up some of that "other" data as well as corrupted data that may be contributing to the duplicated files you are seeing.

​Best Regards.
