    For some reason I have accumulated almost 320gb of movies over the years on my MBP. I'm now trying to find those files and delete them. However, I'm worried I'll also delete some of the videos I've recorded in HD.

    I've tried using the smart folder option on finder and going through the "all my files" in finder, but I can't figure out what is taking up so much space.

    Download a program that uses Treemap based representations of your data.

    Example: Disk Inventory X

    This looks nice! I'm trying it right now.

    Edit: Well, after some waiting, it's finally finished scanning.

    Edit 2: Got it. It turns out that some of my movie files were hidden in my library folder when I upgraded from Snow leopard to Lion
