    Hi all,

    I am using a Mac Mini, Which is having a capacity of 74.2 GB.
    Hardly i made use of 15 or 16 GB of that..
    As i felt some slowness, i tried running "Disk Utility" .
    Recently i found that the free space is only 2.4GB, instead of around 55GB..

    Disk Utility is showing
    USED SPACE :71.8GB

    If i am calculating all folders in "Machintosh HD" (Application, Library,System, etc..), it wil come around 14-15 GB only...

    Why so? plz help !!

    Without knowing specifics, I strongly recommend that you check out Sponge.

    http://www.apple.com/downloads/macosx/system_disk_utilities/sponge.html

    It is made to help you figure out exactly where your disk space has gone.
