    There are a few things you can try:
    • Search with Finder to see if the space is being consumed by a very large file or several large files. Adjust the 50GB in the illustration to whatever size you deem appropriate.

    • For Time Machine users on Lion, Time Machine local snapshots may be consuming space.
    • Use one or more of the apps already suggested. Sometimes they don't show the same thing, so try a few of them
