    I'm in the same boat in the river noob.

    This is EXACTLY what I was searching for in macrumors. I'll repost with findings, as I am going to talk to my local Mac Guru later this week.
    I'm down to 79G on my HD. I have a 2TB EHD with my MacBook backed up on it, but still can't seem to delete the movie files...:confused:

    It should say so, otherwise, you still have a copy lying around.
