    There's a program called Grand Perspective, which will give you a great overview of what's on your drive and where it is. Download it and you'll instantly see where the big files are, and you can right-click them choose to show them in the Finder.

    files were in a hidden folder. so with a combination of grand perspective (to locate file) and onyx (unhide folders) i got it moved and deleted! THANKS A LOT BARYON!

    If they were in a hidden folder do you know what they were.

    Too many people went to "clean" up their Macs only to delete important components because they failed to realize the need.

    Its possible that OSX hidden that folder for a reason.

    Exactly, I'm assuming there will be another post soon asking why something isn't working, "and I don't know why!".
