    using the "About This Mac" utility on my 2012 MBA and the information contained within I have a couple of questions

    Firstly the Movies show 70.51GB but when I check for movies on the HD I find a total of 8GB - where are the rest ( I have emptied the trash too )

    Also under the heading "Other" I have 143.77GB, is there anyway to get more detail on this ?

    TIA:confused:

    "Other" = stuff we (Apple) don't want to explain and bore you. Suffice to say, OTHER than video, music, the easy stuff.
