    Hey guys, so I recently downloaded League of Legends on my 11-inch MacBook Air. Having downloaded the game, this has happened to my storage on my MacBook Air and I've been wondering exactly how it came to be like this. Thanks!

    This storage tab is notoriously inaccurate.

    You can try a shareware utility called Disk Inventory X to get an idea of what's taking up space on your disk (if anything).

    Agreed - download Disk Inventory X and scan your drive for a more accurate look at what's consuming your storage.

    That happens when the Spotlight index is corrupted and it causes that number to be off.

    Run the command below in Terminal to reindex Spotlight and that will fix it. Give it some time to complete the reindex.

    Code:
    sudo mdutil -E /
