    Hi

    Been using my Mac Mini for a year flawlessly for a year or so. I bought a repro Intel Core Duo model, 1.83 and 1gb ram

    I've only used itunes til now, and the occasional film into my plasma through plex. All my choons were stored on an external HDD

    I've just changed HDD to a Samsung Story Station, and - I guess by chance - come to notice that the Mac hard drive has only 7gb free space left.

    I'm 100% confused, as I cannot find a great deal on the drive that takes up any real space - all my media content is on the external HDD

    Can anyone shed some light on this, or tell me what to do / not do? This is my first mac and as it worked faultlessly out of the box, I really had nothing to learn about......until now

    For future reference -- look at the program Disk Inventory X. It will graphically map out your disk usage by file type and location.
