I am observing my storage breakdown by going to About This Mac > Storage > Manage.
From within there, on the left side it lists Applications, Books, and Documents on the left.
It indicates that my Documents uses up 12 gb. When I then click on that entry, the right side pane displays the options of Large Files, Downloads, Unsupported Apps, Container, File Browser.
When I browse through all these options, the amount of files listed in all of them cumulatively does come close to 12 gb. More like 1 gb total.
So how I am supposed to understand where these 12 gb of documents are when it doesn't list any of them.
Also my trash in emptied.
I feel like mac is like "You have a tonne of files, but try to find them..." lol.
