I hav a 500 GB internal hard drive on my Mac Book Pro running Lion.

 

In any Finder window or "get info" on my hard drive, it says I have 465 GB available (only 34 GB actually used).

 

In Disk Utility, it says I only have 121 GB available and 379 used.

 

When I "calculate all sizes" of the folders in the root directory, it's less than 280 GB, so there must be 100 GB of hidden files somewhere.

 

I also suspect that these hidden files are taking up a lot of space on my Time Machine.

 

Yes, I've already run disk utility, repaired disk, emptied trash, restarted, etc. but something weird is going on.
