    The last thing I remember was that I was trying to import some templates to DVDSP4, all of which is on an external hdd, and I got the warning that "my startup disk is almost full." According to Finder, I only had a few megs left on my internal hdd from 12 GB some minutes ago. I rebooted and emptied the Trash but I still only have 2.15 GB. What happened to the rest of my hdd?

    You can use something like OmniDiskSweeper to find out where all that space went, and delete the culprit(s).

    PS! Do not delete anything you don't know what is...

    Just found out what the culprit is! Those DVDSP4 templates I was trying to import from my external hdd copied over to the Library folder causing 10gigs to disappear from the internal hdd. Deleted them and now problem solved. Which leads me to another problem... Why can't DVDSP4 sync to those templates on the external like it's suppose to so I won't have to do anymore stupid importing?
