    I have a 2012 Mac Mini with the 500gb HDD, and recently I added another user account on it (for my wife). Now however it's running out of space...

    Is there any way I can find out how much storage space each user is using? Then I can decide my course of action...

    Thanks in advance.

    The Unix Way:
    From terminal in your /Applications/Utilities sub directory:

    $cd /Users
    $sudo du -sh username

    Repeat for each user.

    The GUI Way:
    From the OS X Finder go to /Users and select the username then right click and select info. You can also use the keyboard command+i.

    Repeat for each user.
