I have a MacBook Pro with 500GB of memory. Recently i just transferred my 300GB of iTunes library onto an external hard drive to free up some space on my MacBook. I deleted it off my internal memory and have checked that it is no longer in Finder. BUT, when I go into "about my mac" and check the memory, it's still saying that I only have 200GB available. I am finding this a bit frustrating now and just want to get it sorted.


I have already restarted my MacBook and held down cmd + r, then when into disc utility but this is also not helping my situation. 

MacBook Pro with Retina display, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.4)
