    Okay SO I have been struggling with clearing up space in my laptop and I finally have just now! I am pretty sure that I eliminated more than 30 GB worth of stuff and yet I have 16 GB free only. It seems to me that my "other" bar seems to grow when I delete stuff and right now it's at 237.75 GB of the total disk space (320GB).

    How do I get ride of all this "other" stuff? HELP! :confused:
