    So, its come that time where I am starting to get the "your startup disk is almost full" messages, and I was wondering what software you guys use to identify the biggest files on your computer to efficiently delete and make more room? :confused:

    Just search using Finder, narrowing your search to larger file sizes.

    Try out Grand Perspective. It'll give you a graphical view of your HD making it easy to spot large files.

    This also works perfectly well similar to Grand Perspective; Disk Inventory X.
