I recently got a new MBP and have been messing around with different backup strategies. I recently noticed that my hard drive has a lot more space used than I would have expected. I'm wondering if there is any (free) application or utility (or anything else) that will allow me to see duplicate files or preferably all of the files on my drive.

I think Disk Inventory X is what you are looking for.

I'm not sure if you want to really see ALL the files on your HD. It could be a pretty long list. You can use the terminal command "du" from / to list all the files on the HD.

I'd pipe that to a text file though, cause man.. it'd be a LONG list.
