    Hi and thanks in advance for your help
    forgive me for my basic terminology..I'm NOT a tech guy at all

    need to clean up for space on my mac but can't find what took up 16G of space during a screwed up sync I performed with my iPhone

    iPhone has 28G taken with lots of video

    1. started a sync/backUp of iPhone to my mac
    2. during the sync I opened the 'get info' window and watched the 20G left on my mac going down fast, I knew that it would just jam and not complete a proper upload, so I stopped it and unplugged the iphone from the mac so I can free space on mac to handle a large upload from my iPhone
    3. my mac internal HD is now down to 4G but I can't find anything on my mac that came from my iphone?
    4. looked in internal HD library for mobileSync/backup but it's not there...
    5.also in iTunes and iPhoto on the mac - i don't seem to have been uploaded from my iPhone
    6. so now I have a computer with no space left and an iPhone with no space left ... don't know what to do

    Where bunnies are welcome.
    Get Disk Inventory and it’ll show you where your space is being used on your Mac. GrandPerspective is another option.
