    Hey guys!

    I'm having a funny issue with About This Mac showing an excessively large number as category totals for used space.

    Has anyone encountered this issue, and might possibly have a fix?

    Many thanks!

    Those numbers come from the Spotlight index and the fact they are off like that indicates the index is corrupted. I have had it happen myself.

    Run the command below in Terminal and it will reindex Spotlight and fix this. Give it some time to complete the reindex.

    Code:
    sudo mdutil -E /

    Already tried that, didn't help.

    I also have my whole drive show up as a Yellow bar with odd numbers for everything.
