What is an "acc HDD"?
Anyway, you can disable local TM backups in Lion via this Terminal (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Terminal_(Mac_OS_X)) command:
sudo tmutil disablelocal
Take a look at DiskInventory X (http://www.derlien.com/) (will not work in Mac OS X 10.7 Lion), OmniDiskSweeper (http://www.omnigroup.com/products/omnidisksweeper/), JDisk Report (http://www.jgoodies.com/freeware/jdiskreport/) or GrandPerspective (http://grandperspectiv.sourceforge.net/) to see where your SSD space went to.
Maybe have a look at Advanced Search to find dozens of similar threads:

acc = accessory outboard USB HDD
disabled via terminal - thanks
but why all of a sudden after deleting itunes - and it's exact same size as tunes deleted...as I understand it, no backups occur on the SSD if a external HDD is attached and used...
