Does the Info window for your boot drive give the same free space as Disk Uiltiy? Select the boot drive on the desktop and type Command + i.
Did you export those RAW files directly to the EHD or to the boot drive first and then copy to the EHD? If so you did remember to delete the exported files from the boot driver, right?
Boot into Safe Mode, Mac OS X: Starting up in Safe Mode, and check the available space there?

Hello and thanks for your tips. I will check the boot drive when I'm back home (i.e. tomorrow) and will eventually boot in safe mode to do the suggested checks.
I have exported the raw files using the procedure in iPhoto (i.e. export files and I have choosen the destination on the EHD when prompted). I have then sent the raw files to iPhoto wate basket emptied it and did the same on the main waste basket.

I have checked with Command + I on the HD and everything was OK. The spare capacity was in line with what I could expect after moving the RAW files to an external HD. THe information was probably not updated in the disk utility.
Thanks for the help.
