    Hey guys,
    I am trying to reduce my data on my Momentus HD, so that i can eventually install a smaller ssd, but after transferring most of my data to another HD the spare HD space does not add up!

    Im not sure where this missing space is going, but i have the following atm.

    Apps - 23GB
    Documents - 36GB
    Music - 32GB
    Movies - 70GB
    Pictures - 32GB
    My Home Folder of the above approx - 191GB

    I have 66GB free from a 500GB HD? Approx 240GB is missing somewhere?

    Looks like you aren't including the Library folder, that could be taking up a bunch of space.

    240GB missing that can only be local time machine backups.

    Is there a way to delete these? Or will it screw my system up?

    I think they should delete themselves if you use the space for other stuff.

    sudo tmutil disablelocal
