Hi All,

A while ago I had a program that showed how much memory was being used up on my macbook, it scanned the hard drive and then came up with a box the size of the screen with all these different coloured blocks that showed where memory was being used and how much was being used. I have since deleted it and cannot remember what it was called!

Recently, I have lost 5GB of hard disk space and I dont know how!

Any help would be greatly appreciated or advice on another program to use.

Many thanks
QUOTE Thanks

im not sure if its the same program you used...but there is a program called "disk inventory x" that does pretty much what you described
