Hi guys, I've been using a 2013 MBA which has 256 gb SSD and 4 gb ram for a year so far. I realized that the SSD space is lower than 10 gb left. It is really odd to me. Once I installed MS word/excel/power point and Parallel 7, I didn't used any heavy files. I downloaded movies and musics but they were mostly deleted after I watched and listened. Thus, I checked the system info and found some problem.

The desktop folder info shows me 56.xx gb is used and 379 files. However when I calculated all size of folders on the desktop folder, it is 17.xx gb. I have no idea where 40 gb uses now.

Here is the pic.
Please help me.

Download the free Disk Inventory X which will tell what files and folders are using the space on your SSD.
