hey all,

i've recently noticed something really weird. i have two drives, one of which is an 80Gig. over the past few days i've noticed my free space dropping like crazy...i seem to have lost 20Gig's in just a few days. i'm not doing anything big, just the basics. i don't really know what's going on here.

my question:
is is possible to list the biggest files in order, from biggest to smallest? i want to see where all of this space is mysteriously going...i'm a bit worried, actually. this is very weird.

thanks

If you change your finder windows' view to the "list" view you should be able to arrange by size. If its not one of the options that you have turned on then just click in an open finder window. Then go to VIEW / VIEW OPTIONS and turn that option on.

Turn on "SIZE" and "CALCULATE ALL SIZES"

I hear ya man.

I feel like a fool after asking the iPod question I did earlier. But now I know. Thats all that counts.

Some times we just don't think of the most obvious things.
