I have a used Mac Pro tower that is about three years old. It is running OS X 10.6.4. It has two hard drives in it. One is the main drive labeled Macintosh HD and the other is a drive the previous owner labeled as back-up. The back up drive is 500gb and the main drive is showing 250gb total capacity. The main drive is the one I am having an issue with. I have not made any changes to the machine since I got it and it was pretty much wiped clean. The drive is showing as almost full yet when I look in Finder at all the foldersand files both hidden and visible, nothing adds up to the drive being nearly full. The only thing on the drive is the OS and a few miscellaneous things but nothing huge enough to fill the drive. I think it may be a drive space allocation issue but I don't know how to check for that or how to fix it if it is the problem. Could the drive really be a 500gb drive but it isn't allocated or partitioned correctly? How do I check for this and how do I fix it? Please Help !!!!
