    As you can see, it shows 200+ GB as "system" where about 115GB should be music and some videos. Music isn't showing up as any of the other sections. Is there a way to get macOS to properly read the information accurately?

    This new Mac was cloned using migration assistant and the previous Mac read it just fine.

    It now changed from "system" to documents. When I go to manage, it files music and movies in the documents section.

    Do music files need to be in a specific iTunes folder to be considered music and not just a document file or is this just how sierra views music files now and doesn't differentiate
