    I started to migrate files from my old hard drive, but canceled it part way through. However, afterwords it seems as if there were about 30GB on my hard drive missing, so i think the files are on my computer somewhere. How do i find them to delete them? I checked to see if they just added to my itunes folder etc. but i didn't see any extra files. any ideas?

    Check your Macintosh HD for a Previous Systems folder or Users folder.

    your post is vague.

    "afterwords it seems as if there were about 30GB on my hard drive missing"

    which drive, your old drive or the destination drive? if you cancelled the migration, why would you expect all the files to be on your destination drive?

    i didnt expect them all to be on my new drive. i expected the ones that transfered before I cancelled to be on my new drive. that's the problem, they are on my new hard drive, hence the 30gbs missing from my new drive. i don't want them on there though. i want the 30 gbs back. so imi trying to find the ones that did transfer, but i'm not having any luck.

    check out Omnidisksweeper or Disk Inventory X and use it on the old drive. Either will help you track down large files and see what's missing from the new drive.
