Hello, i recently moved my iPhoto library to an external HD. The library was roughly 70GB. My harddrive is 320GB. Before moving the library over to the ecternal the HD was 250GB full with 70GB free. After moving the library over to the external and deleting it from the startup the ratio remained the same. I have tried the obious things such as restarting, verfiying and repairing permissions, and verifying and repairing the disk but to the avail. This ratio is consistant in the iStat pro widget and in Disk Utility. However when i run Grandperspective the library is nowhere to be found and all the files are a total of roughly 150 GB which is what it should be with the library successfully deleted.


Thank you in advance
