    I had a nasty crash which produced a total lock up and "Your system has run out of application memory" after a very prolonged beachball. On restarting via power button I appear to have lost about 16GB of SSD space with Grand Perspective reporting it as Miscellaneous used space. I have verified and repaired disk in normal boot and recovery mode.

    The amount of space lost is an estimation based on what I had free a couple of hours before the crash :)

    The OS reports SSD size as 499GB with 140GB available and 359GB used

    Both Grand Perspective and Disk Inventory X show capacity as 465GB ! with 335GB used

    sudo du -chxd 1 /

    gives me :-

    34M /.DocumentRevisions-V100
    60K /.fseventsd
    0B /.PKInstallSandboxManager
    1.9G /.Spotlight-V100
    0B /.Trashes
    0B /.vol
    55G /Applications
    2.3M /bin
    0B /cores
    4.5K /dev
    1.0K /home
    15G /Library
    1.0K /net
    0B /Network
    154M /opt
    6.1G /private
    1004K /sbin
    4.4G /System
    226G /Users
    561M /usr
    23G /VM
    4.0K /Volumes
    332G /
    332G total

    Any ideas clues help or suggestions would be very much appreciated

    restart to your recovery system (Restart while holding Command-R)
    Run Disk Utility, and do the Repair Disk on your main partition.

    There is a free utility called DiskWave:

    You can use it to search your drive to discover what is taking up all the space.
