Hello Experts,

Can someone tell me how to locate hidden files or missing memory.

Have used application called Broom to locate files or folders that are from anything from 100Mb to over 10Gb and can only find 50Gb of stuff, however mac computer has only 10gb remaining from a hard drive of 160Gb.

Basically, there is a ton of disk space being taken up but I can't find it.

Your help will be greatly appreciated.
