    All week I have been getting a message saying my disk is almost full and to make space. I noticed that my 200gb hdd had only 92mb of available space so I decided to delete 6GB worth of stuff I didn't need that was in my download section.

    The following day, I got another message saying my disk was almost full and again it showed less that 100mb available.. again I went in and deleted a bunch of stuff giving myself several GBs of wiggle room.

    Two more days passed bringing me to this morning and again my HD shows less than 100MB available and this message just popped up again. I have no idea what is going on or where the extra mass is coming from.
    Any suggestions would be appreciated

    Yes I did empty the trash bin

    Disk Inventory X will help you identify what's taking space on your hard drive.
