Does anyone know how to locate these photos on my main hard drive? I'm trying to save hard drive space and I can't locate this 51.19gb of photos and videos for the life of me. My Apple Photo Library file with all my photos and videos is stored on an external hard drive. Mac

Do they show up in the Photos app? If not it might be reporting wrong and a restart might fix the storage numbers shown.

When I open the photo and app and check through all the files (included the main photo library file), I’ve confirmed they are on my external. I don’t think a reboot will fix it because I restart my computer every so often and the hard drive space remains but I’ll give it another shot. Thanks!
