    The rule is:


    Backups + Free space (in Storage display) = Available space (in Finder)


    If that's what you have, everything is OK.

    I have simmilar issue. Diskutility reports that i have 93GB used

    But when i try to find what is taking this space and run Disk Inventory, i get results that

    i only have files for 64GB. Where my precious 30GB are gone? that's like 1/4 of my total

    capacity on my air (120GB)

    I have run disk utiity if found no errors. Some time ago i had similar issue, but then disk utility found

    problems and fixed them so i got my space back. But not now.

    Going to disk utility and clicking on repair disk permissions fixed it for me, took 2 minutes reclaiming 50GB
