    Not the end of the world... But in the storage tab in "About this Mac" its saying that there is 113.14 GB free out of 250.14 GB. But, when I look at "Get Info" on my "Macintosh HD" it says there is 201.34 GB free of 250.14 GB... What gives? Is there a way I can re cache my drive so these two figures match? Refer to the following Picture:

    For space issues, there are a few things you can try:
    • Begin by restarting your computer as a first step. This sometimes resolves issues.
    • Search with Finder to see if the space is being consumed by a very large file or several large files. Adjust the 50GB in the illustration to whatever size you deem appropriate.
    • For Time Machine users on Lion, Time Machine local snapshots may be consuming space.
    • Use OmniDiskSweeper, JDisk Report or GrandPerspective to see how space is being used on your drive. Some of these apps may show more detail than others, so try several.
