    iMac showing 335GB of OTHER

    Hi

    My iMac has 500gb but showing 335gb of other? I really dont have much on this but want to find out if there is a way to find what the 'other' stuff is? Anyway of freeing this up?

    Other is stuff that doesn't fall into the other categories - so could be all sorts of stuff. In this case I'd try using Grand Perspective - grandperspectiv.sourceforge.net - this scans your hard drive and gives a great usable image to help you track down what takes up space.

    Also I like to use Onyx to help clear caches and tidy everything up - titanium.free.fr/ony…tml
