    Hi All,
    I have a mac book which we bought last year, we will never buy a pc again!!

    I am however having a problem. I can't update because I don't have enough hard disc space. I have checked with finder and don't have anything particularly massive on it. My photos are 6GB and itunes around 4GB. I have trawled through finder and without resorting to adding every KB up it doesn't make any sense (80GB hard drive). I wondered if it might be my applications clogging up space but again nothing unusual there (I could find their size on finder?) - any ideas I sure I am missing something easy or might there be something more sinister going on?

    Thanks,
    Smudge07

    Thanks guys you are both absolute legends. It was an untitled folder a friend of mine downloaded lots of music (34GB) months ago and I totally forgot about it.
    Thanks so much again - was starting to go a little mad.

    If you want something visual, you can always get GrandPerspective.

    Looks nice too!
