    Suddenly today when messing around with some photos I noted that I was incredibly low on storage space and decided to do some digging. My drive has a capacity of 639GB and my home folder which has movies etc in it is about 326GB And my iTunes library which is shared between me and the wife is 60GB. This means that I have a good 100GB unaccounted for. Some are obviously system files etc. that sound a lot!

    Anyway to check?


    Sorry forgot to ,emotion I've got 143 free which leaves the 100GB
