    Just got a macbook pro 13" and have been transferring a lot of my files from my old laptops hard drive to this and noticed when I went to check how much I have used that everything is classed as 'other' in the storage part of system information. Most of my files are music files but they dont seem to show up on there but they work fine. I have attached a picture below.

    Is there anyway I can fix this?
