i picked up an open box MBP the other day with the 120GB SSD. When I first turned it on it couldn't find a startup disc, I started Internet Recovery and reinstalled the OS. I then installed a few apps(Numbers, Pages, iTunes, PS Elements, Dropbox, couple other small ones). I used selective sync in Dropbox, it says it's using 680 MB. iTunes says 3.1 GB, Photos says 27.3 with Optimize Storage turned on. In About This Mac I have: Other 46.14 GB Photos 26.59 GB Apps 16.81 GB Movies 5.75GB Audio 83.6 MB Backups 6.4 MB Obviuosly the Other seems crazy, Apps seems high, and I haven't put one movie on it so I don't k is where that's coming from. Anyone have some suggestions to get my storage space back? Removing Other? Storing my Photos on iCloud somehow without taking up the space on my Mac? I know it says it only uses the space if it's available, but I feel like it's using too much when I pay for iCloud storage I'd rather just use that. Do apps like xslimmer still work well? I haven't tried that type of thing for years.
