    how do I free up disc space?

    stephen bh71961989

      I am using Lightroom 5 on a MacBook Pro running Yosemite , and with a 750gb hard drive.  As I am getting low in disc space (88gb), I thought the best thing to do would be to delete most of my photos (backed up on an external drive with Time Machine) and also delete catalogue back ups. So I did this.  And emptied the trash.  Now when I check my HD storage space that my photos take up 1.5gb and something called Backups is taking up 601gb - up by over 200gb since doing the deletions.

       

      SO is this something Lightroom is doing or does the problem lie with Yosemite?  And how do I fix this ?
