    I have created a new user in my macbook pro deleting the old user account. So to the new user there are no files except few OS files. When i went to the about this mac to verify the free hard drive. The status shows 138.7 gb of movies as to my knowledge there are no movies at all. and other as 123.26 gb. i don't know what that means.
    Can any one please tell me how to get that space back
