    Really confused by this.

    I have a 2010 Macbook air with 256GB SSD. Currently my Mac says I've used a little over 100GB of space...yet when I add it all up, it's half that. Here's a snapshot of my drive:

    How is that 96GB? (I'm excluding the other random 5GB from Library etc.)

    Found it! Apple is now hiding the MobileSync folder in Lion where I had half a dozen 5GB+ backups saved. WTF? Why is Apple hiding this now?

    Me too!

    Hi,

    How did you fix that problem and where is the MobileSync folder. My MB Air has run out of memory not long after turning on iCloud and apart from iTunes I don't keep a lot stored on it.

    Very new to this so go easy on me peeps!

    And a happy Christmas to you all.
