My "user" folder is about 56GB big, but when I look at the contents (and add them up with a calculator) I get up to about 24GB. What happened to the other 32GB? Is there a way to free this space up?

I have a hidden folder called .rvm with the size of almost 3GB. My Library is almost 30GB though, can I remove something in there? It seems excessively big!

Edit: So, these are the biggest folders in my Library. Is there a way to get some space back, or do I just have to learn to live with this? enter image description here

The one place you haven't listed is your Library folder..

From the Finder menu choose GO

then Go To Folder

 ~/Library

The chances are your Application Support directory has loads of stuff stashed.

  • I named my Library-folder in the question, maybe not clear enough that it's the hidden Library, not music. However, that folder is almost 30GB big with these as the biggest culprits: i62.tinypic.com/2mevokl.png. How do I get some of the space back? It's only a 128GB SSD :P – Rvervuurt Sep 24 '14 at 10:44
  • Also, it's easier to get to the Library by clicking on Go and holding alt :) – Rvervuurt Sep 24 '14 at 10:45
  • I have alt re-tasked so forgat that shortcut a lot – Paul Gilfedder Sep 24 '14 at 10:45
  • Ah ok! But, any way to get some of the space back? – Rvervuurt Sep 24 '14 at 10:46
  • There are apps on the app store that will help locate space hogs and help delete them. I use Disk Doctor itunes.apple.com/gb/app/disk-doctor/id455970963?mt=12 – Paul Gilfedder Sep 24 '14 at 10:49
