I have a 1T HD and am trying to transfer to a 500gb SSD.  I have about 560 stored on my HD, so I went in and deleted about 85gb of video files.  When I started About this Mac > Memory > showed that I had 290gb of movies.  After I sent in and deleted all the files it still shows 290gb.  When I right click on the Movies folder and go to Get Info it shows that there is only 205gb in the folder.


My trash bin is completely empty.

I have shut down and restarted my computer several times.

I have even waiting a few days to see if the info would update over time.


Any suggestions?

macbook pro, Mac OS X (10.6.6)

Correct. Then, add Macintosh HD again

Reindex Spotlight for your OS X volume (Macintosh HD), which is the Mac OS X service that controls what you see there > http://support.apple.com/kb/HT2409?viewlocale=en_US&locale=en_US

I recommend you to wait for hours until Spotlight finishes indexing Macintosh HD. You don't need to be worried about this
