    I have a MacBook Pro that runs Leopard and Vista using BootCamp with VMWare Fusion. I noticed today that I have hard drive space that is gone. I added all the folders up from the Leopard window:
    Apps = 7.24GB
    Library = 5.06GB
    Developer = 32KB
    System = 3.57GB
    User Guides = 11.4MB
    User = 40.76GB
    total= 56.63GB
    My Hard Drive is 250GB with 131GB for Leopard and 50GB for Vista. My Vista drive has 14.5GB free and Leopard has 15GB free. Please help me!

    do a google for disk inventory and download the one from version tracker or the official website. It's basically a little program that will show you were all the files are and you can see where all your space went. I had to do this once, I guess I accidentally made a copy of my home folder when I moving files around and it essentially doubled the space used.

    Try that program though, its good.
