    Hi everyone,

    I am trying to make room on my MacBook Pro. It has a 320GB Hard Drive and 4GB RAM. When I look to see how much storage is being used, it says 72.75GB is being used for movies. I can't seem to find any movie (or videos for that matter) that take up that much space.

    I have deleted the movies i had downloaded via iTunes, and yet the storage did not change. I have 2 files with videos for work that equal just over 3GB combined.

    How do I see where these other "movies" are in my hard drive?

    Thanks for the help!

    If you're wondering what "Other" category in the storage tab is about, this may help explain: For space issues not explained by the above, there are a few things you can try, some of which may or may not apply: Here are a few resolutions found by others with the same question: Freeing up drive space in Mac OS X

    Thanks...

    Thank you. However, that did not solve the issue, nor did it answer my question.

    It did offer possible answers, but since you already checked iPhoto and you already reindexed Spotlight, it's probably another issue.
