    Upgraded from SL to Lion on a 2011 27" iMac...Was browsing around Lion and noticed that it doesn't break down all my files on my HD or any other device. Anyone else have this problem? Is there a way to fix this so I can see how much of what I have on the HD?

    That......looks weird. I don't have any problem viewing my own info. Why not restart your computer and see how it goes?

    Try zapping your PRAM

    Hi i have been reading this thread and notched the problem you are having. Try zapping your PRAM every once and a wile. You will need to restart your mac and hold down the Command+Option+P+R while rebooting this should reset the clock in the battery and fix it all up. Please let me know how it goes.

    This indicates that Spotlight is either off or it has a damaged database. You would check the Privacy tab in Spotlight Preferences to see if it is turned off the drive.

    If it's not turned off, what you can do to rebuild the database is add the drive as one to not be indexed and tyhen after a minute rmeove it form the Privacy list. Reference: Spotlight: How to re-index folders or volumes

    This won't fix the issue and should not be used as a default trouble shooting step for every problem.
