Hi there. I'm running Mountain Lion 10.8.2. I deleted about 20GB worth of data from my hard drive but when I go into activity monitor and click on disk usage it doesn't show an extra 20GB of space. I did this 2 days ago. Is there something wrong with my hard drive? There is nothing in the trash and I have restarted my laptop twice now. Also, I use Daisy Disk to show my usage and it says the same thing as activity monitor. Thanks in advance!

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.8), 13.3", 2010, Core 2 Duo 2.4, 4GB
