[ML] About this Mac

I am looking at the Storage tab on About this Mac

It shows I have 1.99 gb of photos.
iPhoto asks for me to select what library I want and there are none.
In Finder my Pictures folder is empty.
As far as I know, I have no photos at all besides what comes with OS.

Where could those 2 gigs of photos be?


not quite right
I'm not cool enough to be a Mac person

Could it be part of your cache from looking at photos online? Try clearing your cache on your browser(s) and then see if it's still there.

Yup, I am only user

The MBA is about a month old now and I have barely used it
Am waiting for bookkeeper to finish my books so I can get rid of my pc and put QUICKBOOKS on parallels
Then I will have my database and books on one machine for work

All my personal stuff is on my other macs and igizmos

Can't imagine how I could get 2 gigs of pics in cache going to my order entry portals but did give it a shot with no joy...

Thanks for suggestions

why would you run quickbooks in parallels when they have a version for OS X already?

Fair question

1 I already had QB11 from when I went to Win7 on the pc I am ditching now (w7 is the closest windows has come to a 'real os' - I almost like it)

2 The last mac version of QB I had was the 04 I think and my book keeper kept sniveling it 'wasn't the same' and there were some quirks I no longer remember

3 Didn't know QB finally released a new version for mac
Not going to buy another license simply to run native when I have to have windows for other tasks anyway

4 A couple of the sites I have for work as well as one utility I use daily - only work right with IE & in the case of the utility, is windows only

You could use finder to look for .jpg or other formats.

Also, Ccleaner might take care of the crap on the MacBook.

FYI, if your email account is IMAP you can change the default attachment setting to save on space. You can find it in mail preferences under Accounts->Advanced. Otherwise even if you delete the attachments they will redownload. If it's a POP account you will just have to delete them.

I like to periodically run OmniDiskSweeper to see where thing are (and what can be thinned out).
