    Hiya,

    my mac constantly is giving me the 'I'm out of disk space!' warning from what I can see I only really use up around 20 gigs out of the 80 gig hard drive for mp3s, and whatever other random thing I chuck away in a folder. So that kind of leaves me with 60gigs (minus whatever is taken out of the 80 gigs for system files or whatever on the HD). I can't really figure out where the rest of my space is going so I rather just reformat and start from scratch (ex windows user, it's tradition :D).

    So that leads me to my question, is there some really good mac program that will backup my mp3s, emails and little settings along those lines? Or would there be a better approach to handling all of this that doesn't involve a reformat? Thanks! :)

    disk inventory x http://www.derlien.com/ will give you a nice view of whats taking up your space. Helped me a lot when i couldn't figure out where 40gb of my hd went.
