    Have a 2010 macbook pro with lion. Went to use it today and gave me a warning saying low storage please delete stuff or what not. Checked, said i had about 1 gb of space left, had 150 plus last night. Any ideas what could be the problem? Tried re-starting and running some maintenance stuff, not really tech savvy. looked at a breakdown of the storage and it was all wrong, apparently 319 gb out of 320 is being used as "other". Sounds odd. Any help would rule :)
