    When I check About This Mac/More Info/Storage Tab I see the normal set of groups, but although the yellow "Other" bar is fairly substantial below it reports Other as Zero KB. Why would this be? OS/X 10.7.4 on a 2010 13" MBP w/250GB drive. My concerns are first that this may mean there is a problem and second being a bit mental this just bugs me. Thanks.

    Finally found the answer. A participant in the #twitlive forum on irc.twit.tv suggested that I Spotlight "reindex" the drive. That took care of it. I suppose I should have thought of that myself.
