I was cleaning up my SSD hard drive (2012 MacBook Air)... and removed a bunch of videos that I was using in iTunes (not in the iTunes folder). So I deleted 70GB+ or so. Emptied Trash bin and even restarted. Now the System Information screen still shows I have the same used space/free space info, but if I "Get Info" on the disk it shows correctly there. Strange.


System Info, both the "Storage" tab and drilling into System Info, under Hardware/Storage show 108GB free... while the "Get Info" on the SSD shows 180GB free. What gives?


Running latest OS, and all updates. First time ever seeing this kind of issue.


Thanks for the help!



MacBook Air, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)
