So, while using ditto to try to copy my home folder over to the new disk I had just installed, I noticed that it was strange there was no activity at all on the second disk, the free space was unchanged, as was the number of files. However, I noticed that the free space was falling, and quickly, on my current boot drive. In addition, the number of files was growing quickly. I killed the process, but now I'm down to 21 gigs of free space. I assume that I screwed up and somehow the system decided to copy the folder on the same drive...but I cannot find any of these files at all. There has been an increase of many thousands of files according to disk utility, but I cannot find any of them. Since it was my home folder, you would think that there would be duplicates of the media and documents within it, but there are not, at least not that I can find. Can someone please direct me as to what I have done, and how I can get rid of these ghost files? I am going to just drag and drop the home folder to change it now, but there was still over 25 gigs of files copied before I killed the process. I'd really like to find them and get rid of them. Serves me right for not triple-checking the code. Thank you so much in advance.
