    I've been having an issue in which no matter how much data I delete of my Macintosh HD, it keeps getting full. I download a lot of stuff, but then transfer all to an external drive and delete it off my main HD... But istat and Disk Utility show no change in available space (sometimes even LESS space after I delete). On the other hand, if I just "get info" on the HD I see a lot more available space, that makes much more sense (i.e right now the istat + Disk Utility show around 70GB free, while in the 'get info' terminal I get 154GB free). I am of course emptying the trash and my TM backup is to an external drive.

    Any idea's? I'm low on space already, and it's beginning to worry me

    I'm running:
    rMBP 2.3/16
    256 SSD
    ML 18.1

    Click your Apple icon>about this Mac>More info>Storage.

    I'm guessing most of it is filled with 'backup'?
