    Hi all,
    I just bought a new MacBook Pro and the disk space is already full. When I look at "About this Mac", I have 110GB dedicated to "Other". What is "Other" and how do I get rid of this?
    Thanks,
    Jess

    Was it full when it came out of the box? Then I would expect a hard disc (SSD) failure.

    Or was it full after you copied data over from your previous laptop? Time machine restore? Then you will have to delete data ;)
