I don't understand the discrepancy between two different views of my hard drive. (see image). In disk utility and about this mac, it shows only 322GB free, but when I do an info on the Macintosh HD, it shows 438GB free.

I do not believe that the 322GB free is correct. I have checked all of my folders and system folders and it comes very close to the 438GB free figure.

I went into the RecoveryHD mode and used Disk Utility to fix the disk and repair permissions, but that didn't help.


Anybody know what's going on here?

iMac (27-inch Late 2009), OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.4)
