brindlegrl is on a distinguished road

weirdly i had the size column on my macbook pro but not on my imac, both running 10.6.8/snow leopard. fooled around and noticed that the gear symbol at the top of the finder window shows "show view options" in the drop-down menu. here you can add "size" to the choices. however, this is still not showing me the size of my major files. i also have a program called Disk Inventory X which a techie friend introduced me to, and this will show you in a patchwork how your space is allocated. unfortunately it does not offer to clean things up for you. so i am back where i started and may have to pick through zillions of photos for dupes. ugh.
