I was wondering if there are any folders that have a lot of information in them that takes up a lot of space that osx10.4 takes up. Because I was going through my hardrive trying to see why i am running out of freespace. I went through Applications, Music, Movies and Pictures the folders and It looks like I still have about 50gb that is used up but i cant seem to find out where all of that is. I have a 250gb hardrive and have only been able to account for 180gb of used up space, but my finder says i only have 4gb left. Anyone have any ideas if this sspace is from the os or what, and if it is deletable?
