Click the apple sign at the top left of your screen, then click about this mac. And then where it says version, send that to me as a reply.
You can use this sweeper to find the files and show them and you can choose what you want to delete from there: (if you are 10.8 and higher)
Please leave a reply and we will go from there or find another method if you are under 10.8 version.

One moment please. I will redirect for your 10.7
You can use this one to help with your clean up, but it is a paid version i believe.
it will run with your version to repair the spaces.
In OS X El Capitan or earlier, “Other” files are those that your Mac doesn't recognize as belonging to any other category. These include files within disk images or archives, data stored by apps such as Contacts or Calendar, and app plug-ins or extensions. When your Mac is in Safe Mode, all files are categorized as Other.
The reason i sent the program is it will open those up and 'show' you what those files are instead of
labeling them as 'other'.
the only way to go in is empty your trash immediately. restart your mac. and then see if 'other' is still showing
I can do this for you. But you can do this as well. You go thru each folder and delete what you
dont want. Its that simple. I can do this for you if you wish, granted you have time.
I advise to do a remote support with me and we go through together, do it on your own, or use the cleaner.
Those are the options we have before us.
Absolutely. We understand you have a life and cannot just put everything down. We accommodate for that
at your time preference. All you have to do is update me when you are ready and we continue as we are now.
I do not close out unless YOU are ready. I am on EST. 5pm here.
Just update when ready, tonight, tomorrow etc. and it comes to my email.
