    To find out, where you storage capacity is being used, you can use the following free applications:
    Maybe try a combination of several, if you still can't find the "missing" capacity.

    Where did you get those numbers* btw?

    I got it from disk inventory x which breaks down everything on my hard drive and shows me where all my space is going.

    It also shows the folder structure on the left and sorts the folders by size, which you then can expand to find the biggest folders and files. Or does that not work for you? If so, maybe have a look at OmniDiskSweeper then.
