    Hi,

    I have read these forums/google for a definitive/best way to track down the files that are clogging up your hard drive.

    I've tried the Smart Folder route and for whatever reason it doesn't work as well as I'd like.

    What is the best way to do this? Thanks a lot!

    You can use Disk Inventory X or Grand Perspective, 2 apps that are really good for this type of thing

    ....but don't delete anything if you aren't sure what it is!
