I'm not sure what "mo" and "go" mean. If they're MBs and GBs, please let me know. If you got down to 900, 100, or 80MBs, it may well be that your HD's directory is corrupt. Open Disk Utility, click on your HD show in the upper left corner of that window, then click on "Verify Disk" in the lower right corner. Wait for it to finish: it should say it's ok, or it needs repair. If it says it needs repair, post back and I'll give you directions for a repair attempt.

Thank you for you reply.
Yes I mean mbs and Gbs. I already done this many times. And I checked every folder and it gives me about 152gbs of data so I should have 90-100 gbs free, but I only Have 80Gbs free.

Are you looking at the bottom of the Disk Utility window where it says "Capacity," "Available," and "used?"

No, I don't. I addition every folder. And when I check the Disc Utility window, there are 169gbs used, I just can find 20gbs

The system uses a lot for temporary files, memory swapping, etc. Empty the wastebasket, restart, then report immediately how much is "missing" - 20GO is not a lot.

i don't know if you still reading this. but i have a similar issue, loosing harddisk space on "backups" - what shows up on the "storage bar" when clicking on "about this mac > more info > storage". i ve just reinstalled os x (10.8) yesterday to get rid of over 160GB of "backup". this morning there were none, and in the afternoon i had already 1GB of "backups" showing up and growing again. don't know where that comes from, how they ve been created.
any idea what this could be?
