Re: Cannot find files taking up space on my Macbook Pro

First thing I do when putting a used machine in service is to re-partition the disk and then re-install the OS from external media.  That's the only way I can be 100% sure that the machine contains ONLY the items it is supposed to contain.   After the re-install the first step is visiting software update to make sure the machine is up-to-date.

If I think there may be something on the machine that I want to keep I'll do a complete backup of the system disk before blowing away the old OS.
