Now I use Aperture - BUT have a dedicated 500GB external Drive for its library - so it's not the piccies on there that are using up all my internal HD.
I have , but don't actually use, iPhoto - and it had 5000+ pics on it [ I believe about 16GB worth.]
I've exported all of them to the new 1TB external Drive BUT I have not reclaimed that 16GB onto the internal HD .I deleted all the Photos and also the several folders of projects from iPhoto. I've also put a number of Documents and stuff I still need, and actually access regularly , onto the 1TB drive.
How do I find where all these things have left bits behind on the MBP ? it now says I have 38.7GB available and I've used 120.49GB.
I need to reclaim some empty room on the internal HD.
Any ideas for this techno-idiot ? Please - pretty please
