View Full Version : 7gb of photos but where are they ???

Sep 10, 2013, 08:32 PM
I am cleaning out my HD and after clearing everything out including the photo library I still have 7 gigs of photos ?

I went so far as to delete iPhoto and it's still showing 7gb of photos.

What am I doing wrong?

I use time machine but it backs up to an external HD.

Thanks for any help.

Where does it show 7 GB of Photos? In the Storage section of the ABOUT THIS MAC window?

To find out, where you storage capacity is being used, you can use the following free applications:

DiskInventory X (http://www.derlien.com/)
OmniDiskSweeper (http://www.omnigroup.com/products/omnidisksweeper/)
JDisk Report (http://www.jgoodies.com/freeware/jdiskreport/)
GrandPerspective (http://grandperspectiv.sourceforge.net/)

Maybe try a combination of several, if you still can't find the "missing" capacity.

WOW ,,,... Thank you !!!


it found 4.8gb of photos/videos .... are you ready .. in iMessage !!!

Now I deleted all the texts I had as I know they can bog my phone down but for some reason even when deleting these on my computer they remained hidden.

Good Grief!
