    Missing Files and Missing Space
    Hi,

    I am still a little unfamiliar with navigating my macbook and need some help trying to figure out some inconsistencies.

    My Downloads folder (when I "Get Info") shows a size of 47 GB and has 117 files.

    When I open the actual folder and display the contents, only 49 files show up and add up to nowhere near 47 GB. How is this possible and how do I figure out where all those files are?

    Thanks in advance for the advice.

    Download EasyFind and take a look at your Downloads folder. That will probably show you what's there that your not seeing in Finder.

    I just downloaded it, but it is search geared. Not sure what to search for. Is there a way to display all folder contents using easyfind?

    Sorry, tired, and read that wrong. That's a LOT of files

    As in your duplicated thread, I would ask the same question as Aptmunich. Did you check all the sub-folders and items in the folders?

    sure, it recognizes Boolean and Wildcards, so *.* ought to find everything.
