You may notice a difference in available space statistics between Disk Utility, Finder, and Get Info inspectors. This is expected and can be safely ignored. The Finder displays the available space on the disk without accounting for the local snapshots, because local snapshots will surrender their disk space if needed.

Great, thanks. I've never heard of snapshots before. But now that I know that the snapshot is reported under "backups" this creates another question for me. The "About this mac", storage report shows that I have 218 GB of movie space occupied. Is there a simple way to see where those movies are located? I'm not sure how I have so much movie space if my imovie and idvd movies are located externally. I'm sure I have some in iphoto or itunes, but I doubt I have 218GB. Any idea how I can identify those movies? Thanks for the help.
