    Disk Space Issue
    When i go to finder and look at the Macintosh HD info (command I) It says that 418 GB's of my 500 GB HD have been used. This made no sense to me so I added up the sizes of all of the folders in the root directory of the Hard drive (Applications, Developer, Library, System, Users) including the hidden folders such as private and var and I got a total of 142 GB, which is much more reasonable. A scan with Daisydisk confirmed this. Any idea where these 270 somewhat gigs went?

    Download the free "Disk Inventory X" to find out what's taking up the space.
