Cannot find files taking up space on my Macbook Pro

I just purchased a used 2011 i7 Macbook Pro with a 240gb SSD drive. When I go to "about this Mac" under "storage" it shows only 104gb available with 34gb of photos, 21gb of backup and 70gb of other being taken up. I've looked everywhere to find the files that are taking up space......nada.

I don't want to migrate over the 170gb of stuff on my iMac that i'm selling until I have a clear and free HD on the MBP.

I've created admin user, deleted the old user, did a command R on startup, opened disk utility and did a repair disk, restarted the computer and it still shows more than half the HD being used.

Your comments and suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
