How can I reduce the size of my HD folder? I have more than 22 GB in "others". It is actually using more memory than my documents and apps and does not show contents. I have deleted the main info in mobileSync folder, but is still very big.
I'm a big fan of Daisy Disk. It gives you a graphical display of the usage of your drive. It lets you delete items pretty quickly too. You can try it for free. (Disclaimer: not associated with Daisy Disk except as a satisfied customer.)
- open your HD in the Finder and press Command-2
- then open view options (Command-J) and select calculate all sizes
- you can find folders with large use and expand them, focusing your attention on /Users first and clean up things that are larger than you care to have around
