After the recent Mountain Lion update, my Finder now shows an incorrect amount of free space.


I have a 500GB hard drive, and I have about 150GB free.


After the update, finder says I have 478.4 GB free?


That looks like the total capacity, after you account for system software. I've done a PRAM and SCM reset, disk verification and repair, but still no joy.


Any thoughts? Is it a bug in the update?

MacBook Pro (15-inch Late 2011), OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)
