    Running out of HDD space
    The 1 TB hard drive on my iMac is quickly filling up with video, more than anything else. I am expecting that I will need to get a secondary drive and attach either with Firewire or Thunderbolt, if I can get one at a reasonable price. But I digress--When I noticed I have only about 200 GB of space left, i went to "About This Mac" and see that there are 177 GB of data classified as OTHER. I realize my Documents & Parallel would be in this area, but they only occupy 100 GB of space. What would be taking up the other 77 odd GB?

    Everything that isn't included in the other categories including system files. Think of "other" as a catch all for anything that isn't audio, movies, photos, apps or backups.

    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
