    Not sure, but for some reason my mac hard drive has gotten to be 95% full. I know where all the things I put on my laptop are and have added them up and they do not equal up to 132 GB of space. I have deleted the Previous Systems folder which was taking up a lot of space. Where are there more mysterious locations that are taking up space that are not needed and safe to delete?

    Have a look at Disk Inventory X (www.derlien.com if I remember correctly), it will show you where all the big files are.

    ...clone your drive and then do a fresh install...

    Then you can look at what happened on the cloned external HDD and figure it out with out risking data loss...

    Thx! Disk Inventory was very helpful. I found audio left over from Logic Studio that I removed from my laptop a long time ago on the laptop. It freed over 20GBs of space.
