    My 120 GB internal Hard Drive is finally full.

    I click on the finder and I go on to see where
    it is so full:

    Pictures 13,47 GB
    Music 15,64 GB
    Movies 23,55 GB
    Documents 15,05 GB
    Applications 1,05 GB
    Desktop 18,48 GB

    Then also,
    igmolinav (the only user of this laptop and
    represented by the icon of a little house)
    has 35,37 GB

    I never go directly to the user igmolinav, but he takes up 35,37 GB, or almost one fourth of the hard drive's capacity.

    I don't know a lot about how computers work, I just fear that some information may have been duplicated, and I need really need to free up a bit the hard drive.

    In advance, thank you very much for your help !!!

    Very kind regards,

    All of those folders that you mentioned should be inside your home folder, which also contains config files and other things associated with the OS. So you probably aren't duplicating files.
