Backup problems from Time Machine
Take a look at that 4.1 GB of backups.
When I delete something from my Mac (if the file was 1GB) then 2x more space is added to the backups (backups become 6.1 GB).
I want to stop that. I have already turned off time machine and deleted the backup disk.
Any chance of locating that stupid backup file on my Mac?

Have you searched for a folder called "Backups.backupdb" yet?
When a drive is not used entirely for TimeMachine it puts the backups into a folder and on my external drive that is what it is called.

You can disable this, if you want to, as shown here:
Though I would suggest that if you're looking for ways to save space on your startup drive, 6Gb of temporary backup is not the biggest culprit.
I hope that you do have some backup strategy in place, if not Time Machine. Files without any backup are waiting to be lost.
