So I bought a 3TB western digital external hard drive for my macbook pro and I am mainly using it for storing HD video that apparently takes up a lot of space. I have 750gb capacity on my computer which is almost full, and then 600gb remaining out of the 3TB on my external, and theres no way I could of taken up this much space. There must be doubles or something going on. When I right click on the hard drive it says 3TB capacity, 750GB free. So when I go inside the hard drive and click on the big folder called “wd.smartware.swstr” it says its 1.6TB… Is there an app or a way to clean up my hard drive so I can take doubles off and such? I use Final cut pro x. I don’t want to reset my hard drive because theres stuff on it that I need and can’t fit on my internal hard drive.
Thanks for the help.
