You might give this a read Lost Harddrive Space? | Mac-Forums Blog. Member Stretch covered most of the likely culprits in that blog post.

Also, are you using a laptop with Time machine enabled? If so, and you are running Lion, Time Machine stores some of its backups on your hard drive if it can't find your regular Time Machine drive. Lion’s local backup devours disk space

Thread moved to more appropriate forum. Clearly not an iPhone hardware posting.

Also...it's not necessary to double post (duplicate thread deleted).

Thanks,
