Just to clear that up first, yes I have read many of the other threads on this.

I had about 60something GB of 'other', so I decided to do some of the stuff recommended in the other threads. I used Disk Inventory X and Grand Perspective to try to get an idea of what was going on, I emptied the trash, I deleted the sleepimage file as well as other stuff, I asked Spotlight to reindex the entire hard drive and I restarted the machine.

However, the result is now that 110 GB show up as others, while the app and audio ratios are almost gone :confused::confused::confused:

Now, the total is probably correct, but it there any way that this can be 'reset' so that I get a more correct representation of what constitutes apps/audio/video etc?

I have a mid 2011 13", if that makes any difference.
