Hard drive free space is wrong?!
Hi! I'm having some problems with my external hard drive, please can someone help!
I have a 500GB external hard drive that is partitioned into 3 sections -  Mac OS extended for dedicated time machine backups (200GB),  Mac OS extended for general file storage (100GB) and  FAT32 for backing up my husband's windows PC (the rest). I've been doing some video editing and moving clips between the external HD and my macbook. But now I've finished I noticed that something weird has happened. The Mac partition of the external HD currently has only 3 files, around 1.2GB. But Finder is showing 77GB is used and therefore not letting me copy my DV footage (around 40GB) that I want to transfer to a friend's computer.
I've put a screenshot here - and have hidden files/folders displayed. So what is taking up the 76GB that finder says is used?!
thanks in advance for any help!
