Use Disk Utility mac application to verify and repair both permission and HD, came out permissions were all messed up and the HD itself had issues too.

As soon as it was repaired the Other was gone.

To access the Disk Utility in Mac OS X, just press Command+Space to open Spotlight search, type Disk Utility, and press Enter.

You can also click the Launchpad icon on your dock, click the Other folder, and click Disk Utility.

Beginning with OS X El Capitan, system file permissions are automatically protected.

It's no longer necessary to verify or repair permissions with Disk Utility.

Follow these steps in OS X Yosemite or earlier: Open Disk Utility, which is in the Utilities folder of your Applications folder.
