    My macbook pro retina 13" is having some issues, it says that my capacity is full and that i have over 2 TB of videos, etc, on it. I can`t find anything on my mac thats heavier than 3GB.

    Got tips?

    That screen gets its info from the Spotlight index and when the index is corrupted it will read incorrectly like yours is.

    Run the command below in Terminal and wait for Spotlight to complete a reindex and that should fix it.

    Code:
    sudo mdutil -E /

    You need to wait for the reindex to complete. Click on the Spotlight icon in the menu bar and you will see a blue swirly bar showing the reindex is still in progress. It can take 30 minutes to an hour or so if you have a lot of data.
