    Ok so here is a question, on my G5, I have 2 internal drives. One is my media drive for iTunes and iPhoto and one is my main App drive and documents and sorts. (Then there is also outside drives for FCP etc).

    So, my original drive was 160GB and right now, thats down to 26GB, but I cant seem to figure out where that HDD space has gone too. I check my App folder and it claims only 12GB (well this I know isnt right for FCS takes up over 60GB....but im assuming it installs the rest of it somewhere else?) and I have Misc stuff in the documents/Movie/Pictures folder worth maybe 8GB on the high side of life....

    So im curious, how can I find out where HDD space is being taken up?

    Download either (or both) of the free utilities Disk Inventory X or Grand Perspective to see where the space is being used on your drive. Either will help a lot.
