    Fairly easy question, but I am stumped here....

    I am giving my laptop to a family member. I made a new user, and deleted my old username. The only user on the MBP is a new fresh user. So there is zero media/files on the computer at this point other than the system & applications. Problem is my laptop is showing 110GB of 160GB. The system files take up roughly 29GB. So that brings me to 139/160.

    I know you don't get 160GB with 160GB, its less. But not 21GB less. Anyone have a clue what I'm missing?

    Here's a pic:

    Why not just do a clean install of the OS? That way you're also sure that all your personal data's been deleted. ;)

    simsaladimbamba, thanks for the advice.

    Disk Inventory X did the trick.
