    So I bought a new laptop, and I'm trying to clean up my old laptop before I move everything over. I purchased Daisy Disk to get an idea of what's on my drive, but it doesn't seem to be helping much. There's like 70gb of storage that's just used, but I don't know for what. Any ideas on where to start looking?

    Looks like it's Time Machine backups. Thanks for the great overview!
