After I downloaded Yosemite I noticed my hard drive went from having about 93 Gigs of free space to almost 104? How did I suddenly free up about 11 gigs of hard drive space? Has this happened to anything else? What was deleted?

Same here...gained about 3 GB. At first I thought I was imagining my increase in HD space. Iʻll take it though...

I gained about 7 gig

One of my MacBooks - a mid 2012 air with only 64 GB RAM went from about 2 gig free to over 9. I'm happy. But still need to increase drive. 25gb is lost in the system files.

Yup I went from 9gb to 20gb. I was wondering maybe it's all the caches from general usage that was removed..

I did an update to trim and either because of the author (more likely an OS X change) the hibernate file is now disabled by default...that would account for the increased hard disk space. Can anyone confirm?
