    Hello everyone :)

    I just purchased my first Macbook secondhand today. When I go to storage it says I have about 20 gigs of audio files but when I try to locate them in my files I cannot find them.

    *I have Lion (but no start-up disks so I can't wipe the system clean)
    *I deleted the other admin account and did not save a copy
    *There is a guest account which I haven't accessed yet
    *It's a 2009 Macbook with a 120 hard drive

    Any help on how I can locate the files and erase them would be appreciated!

    Thank you :)

    Okay using the tool it looks like most of the files are torrents under a user name. But that user name is not in the list of registered users. There's also a private file taking up about 4 gigs of space called 'var".

    When I try to delta from the tool it says I don't have access to the folder.

    How can I delete these files?
