    Bought an iMac very recently and it came with a 1TB HD. A few minutes ago, I found out i've used 893 gigs of that. There is no way that is possible. I'm a big music, movie and TV junkie so my iTunes Media folders size is 293 GBs. I can't think of anything that could be using this much space. Any help would be appreciated.

    First have a look at /About this Mac/More info/Storage.

    You might post a screenshot here.

    ^ I did that and it showed I have 500 GBs worth of movies. I know that isn't right because I only have a little over 100. So, something weird is going on here. Maybe there are duplicates? if that's the case, where would the duplicates be located?

    I've gotten about half of my hard drive back but there is still a problem. I have 184.17 GBs of TV shows and now only 35.6 GBs of movies but according to System Information I still have 190.6 GBs worth of movies.
