    Hey,
    Weird thing happened today. Startup disk is almost full warning showed up.
    Thats odd, 128gb samsung SSD, shouldnt be full. I have icloud photos and a couple office and adobe apps, but thats about it on here.
    So I opened omindisk sweeper, and it calculates 73gb used.
    Any idea what I should do to find / delete whatever is taking up the space? obviously, I rebooted but that doesnt seem to help. And Omnidisk is reading lower than the OS sooo....

    See image below of my storage, vs omnidisk.
    Running 10.11.4

    I'll try that. Thanks. Spotlight sucks. It won't give me results for Google / Bing like it's supposed to, never finds any of my music, about all I use it for is the calculator.

    Well I dont know which did it, but i reindexed the disk, turned off local snapshots (its connected to the TM via eterner, and Ive disabled it before..) and rebooted. Something seems to stick. reading 39gb free.
