Any ideas why these are so different? Maybe a bug?

I am going to guess the lower one, finder, is right, because I have little on the v2.


Running latest beta of 10.7.2

Report it to Apple. Looks like a bug.

MobileBackups, most likely. Finder doesn't see or report the space taken up by them, because it's intentionally hidden from the file system. Activity Monitor probably wasn't designed to ignore them, however, so it shows more space being used.
