Lately I've noticed that "other" has been slowly creeping up to 75gb

I've read up a bit and turned off time machine then re verified my disk and repaired, then deleted unwanted/old files with omnidisk and have gained 35gb (was 25gb before using omni).

Omnidisk now says that my drive is used to 362gb , however about this mac says that I've used 390gb - Where would I find this "missing" 38gb :confused:

Also since the clean up "other" is still showing as 75gb





Any ideas?

I would suspect something like an app filling the log file. See the link in my first post, but don't rule out other possibilities.

Tried the above and am still at 75gb, when I open omni I get this



Looks like a trip to the apple store or a clean install of everything
