    Ok after I ran security, qt, and others my mbp is acting weird. it was running really really slow with lots of spinning wheels. i verified/ran disk permissions and verified disk.

    i have a 15" 2.33 c2d 200g hard drive
    it shows 185.99 total, 44.28 free, 141.71 used

    i thought I had like 70-80g free before the updates, but when i looked today i only had 8g, so i deleted a bunch of stuff but it didnt put that big of a dent in it. when i check folders individually it says:
    applications 4.55, library 10.11, system 1.85 ,user guides 4k, users 57.69
    which totals to like 74.2g, so i should have almost another 100+ gigs free? or am i totally missing something?
    and is there anywhere i should be looking for huge files hiding from me? i have like 45g of music, and i removed all of my video files.

    You might want to size up the situation a bit more accurately using Disk Inventory X. It could be a log file gone bad.

    You should be able to see hidden files using it as well. Anything starting with a '.' shows up for me when I use it.

    thanks, i found a few files that were taking up some room that i could delete, but nothing big enough to explain this discrepency.

    The sleepimage is normal for OS X. I'm not sure what else to say about what is using your disk space.

    Nice program is it not?

    but im right though? there is something wrong right. I'm not actually using all that drive space that i know of. I'll just take it into the store, i just want to make sure its not something obvious. Thanks for your help!
