    Don't know if anyone can help, but my macbook air is October 2010 model. I already upgraded to Lion.
    The hard drive has a capacity of 125GB, and the HD Macintosh, get info is showing 95GB used.
    I have about 10GB of music, a few GB of pictures, and no films, so I cannot see how I am using 95GB.

    I have had my mac for over a year - and still haven't got to grips with it! Where can I see exactly see how all this used capacity has gone?

    Has it stored my snow leopard in a partition - am I able to delete this, if this is the case?

    Thanks

    Go to the top left menu, about this Mac, more info, then the storage tab. Also, do you have time machine backing up locally?

    Hi

    Thanks for your help.

    It says I have 16GB Audio, but i believe I only have 8GB!
    Movies, 20.72GB - I don't believe I have any movies on the mac!
    Photos 3GB - probably about right
    Apps 7GB - not sure
    Backups - 0GB
    Other 48GB - not sure what this is.

    I am not sure if I have time machine on, how do i check?

    Thanks very much

    What you believe is irrelevant vs what's really there. I'm sure I think I have a lot less stuff crammed in my attic than is really there. ;)

    Use DaisyDisk or GrandPerspective to see where the space is being used.

    System Preferences -> TimeMachine will show you the status of TM.
