    Exclamation Hard drive says it's full of "movies"....nope.
    My MacBook Pro hard drive is almost full. When I look under "storage" in "about this Mac" it says that almost 80G are taken up by "movies". Problem is, I don't have any movies on my mac. There are no TV shows, only one or 2 music videos (came with album purchases), but nothing that would constitute 80G of "movies". I can't for the life of me locate where there might be something disguising itself as 80G worth of movies. Brought it up with several Mac geniuses, and surprise ideas. Thoughts? Thanks!

    Grab a copy of Disk Inventory X and let it loose on your HD, once it's done look at the largest blob it shows. That's your culprit taking up the most space, and work your way down from there finding and deleting things you KNOW you don't need nor want..

    Be sure to have a recent backup just in case you delete something you didn't meant to..
