15 GB added to my HD but don't know why

I just transferred about 16GB of files from my HD and had about 100GB available but today I noticed I only had 84GB available. I had about 81GB of available HD before I transferred the 16GB so there's no way I could only have 84GB of available space today..

When you transferred the 16GB

what did you do with the originals

found out what happened

I trashed the originals but I solved the problem. I did a lot of video rendering and encoding and turns out it created a 16GB file in an Adobe Media Cache Files folder buried deep in my Library folder.
