    Hi All,

    I have a 2011 MPB with a pretty small solid state drive in it.

    It's getting pretty full now although I can't see where the space is being used (in about this mac it says 70GB is other)

    I have ~20 GB in Music/ Films and ~40GB in applications.

    Is there any program I can use/ fancy way I can see exactly what is using up my storage space kind of like the all programs function in windows?

    I'd really like to free up some space!
