I have a problem with disk space - all programs report that I used up 470GB out of 512GB, but all my files take about 245GB. Storage tab in "About this Mac" reports this space as "other". Where is the missing space?
This is a Mid 2014 MBP with built-in SSD running OS X 10.11.6.
I tried already without success:
- Repair disk permissions
- restarting :)
- Cleaning Spotlight cache
- Removing small files that resulted in many inodes
- Checking SDD health (is ok)
Daisy Disk and Path Finder reports 470GB used, whereas the sum of all folders is 245.3GB:
And here is the output of
$ df -h Filesystem Size Used Avail Capacity iused ifree %iused Mounted on /dev/disk1 465Gi 438Gi 26Gi 95% 114982849 6860861 94% / devfs 334Ki 334Ki 0Bi 100% 1156 0 100% /dev map -hosts 0Bi 0Bi 0Bi 100% 0 0 100% /net map auto_home 0Bi 0Bi 0Bi 100% 0 0 100% /home /dev/disk3 931Gi 605Gi 326Gi 66% 158652305 85363725 65% /Volumes/Toshiba Backup
