    OK. Lion 10.7.4, 120GB Corsair Force 3 SSD.

    Trash has been emptied, just backed up with Time Machine, /.MobileBackups has been deleted, as has another hidden /. in relation to Versions, no help.

    WhatSize reports my hard drive capacity as 110GB. It say I have 22.9GB free space and 87.7GB used.

    However, in the detail panes it lists the exact details of all my files and they total just 26.2GB.

    Where is my missing 65.1GB?

    As suggested, it may help to try several, as some show different results. For example, there are cases where DiskInventoryX doesn't show something that OmniDiskSweeper does, and vice versa.
