My iMac G5 is around 2 years old and the other day I notice that out of 250 Gb of Hard drive, I only have 60 GB left. I looked for some movies and deleted a few and I am now until 80.

How can I find out what is hogging up my Hard Drive? Is there a software or does the Mac have a way to help with the programs hogging of the space.

TIA
QUOTE Thanks

Have a look at this for a number of suggestions and links. Movies take up huge amounts of HDD space and it sounds like it is time to set up a 1TB external for movies if you are a big fan. Also check out the Monolingual and Disk Inventory X in particular links:-
