    Hey everyone,

    I was wondering if there was a way to check what is taking up your hard drive space. I have a 500GB drive and only have about 150GB left, and I really dont no why its that low...

    I have a few movies on my computer (maybe about 20), but I cant see that taking 300GB...

    I tried to just highlight everything, hoping a total file size would show, but I dont see one.

    I just moved a bunch of video files that were about 1GB each onto an external, and it only cleared about 10Gb...But I have a feeling that iMovie might be the reason, as most of those video files were imported into iMovie. If thats the case, how do I clear out iMovie?

    Thanks

    Well I was right, iMovie was the cause. Deleted most of my unwanted projects and cleared 90GB
