    Hi everyone!

    My Mac tells me I have used 748GB of my hard, but I am sure I have not. It was not like this since like 2 days ago. I think there's something wrong with it but I donno what! Any help?

    Download and use OmniDiskSweeper. It will provide a sorted list of what's consuming your space.

    Could be time capsule snapshots. Go to System Preferences then Time Machine and turn automatic local backups to off.

    Open Activity Monitor, see if you have huge pageouts.

    Edit: This is almost never a problem but last time there was this guy who had close to 100 GB.

    Use the App suggested by Maflynn.
