    I have a 120GB MBP, the total capacity is 111.47GB (after the OS X), apparently I have only 67.64GB of space available. I have used up 43.83GB of space and I don't know how.

    I have 8.54GB of music, 14.37GB of applications and 5.11GB of movies, documents, pictures and other miscellaneous items doesn't even add up to 1GB, the total space used should be roughly 30GB. How did I end up using 44GB?

    I don't understand :/ Can someone please tell me whats going on?

    Run WhatSize, and that will tell you where the stuff is, and how big it is.

    I am wondering the same thing. I have a 120GB drive. I did "get info" on every folder on the drive and it only adds up to about 30GB. Finder says I have 70GB free. I am missing like 20GB in some black hole. Please tell me that OSX doesn't use 30GB on its own.

    Hmm, well getting info on every file would only be the visible ones, maybe the core underpinning are hidden from us in Finder, I don't know
    Still seems an awful lot though
