    Hey guys, I'm trying to install Lion to a separate partition on an Intel G2 X-25M SSD. I haven't had any problems with the drive up until now.

    See the screenshot for a good explanation. Finder thinks I have 23GB (which is correct, I started with 13GB and cleared a few things out, upping the available space), but Disk Utility thinks I have 12GB, and Boot Camp thinks I have less than 10GB.

    I made sure the Trash was emptied, and I also restarted my machine after emptying just to make sure everything was properly updated. :confused: I have repaired the disk permissions, and also verified the disk, things appear to be fine.

    Code:
    Sputnik:~ Craig$ df -H /
    Filesystem     Size   Used  Avail Capacity  Mounted on
    /dev/disk0s2    80G    56G    23G    72%    /
    Edit: (Second Screenshot) Interestingly, if I select the only partition on the drive in Disk Utility (instead of selecting the drive itself) the free space is reported properly. The miscalculation only appears when trying to create a new partition. (See second image.)

    Edit 2: (Third Screenshot) Things are getting weirder. When I select an item and try to move it to the trash, I see a dialog notifying me that the item will be deleted immediately. (I've seen this before, I think it was when working with a network drive.)

    Nope, I'm the owner of my home folder, and permissions are 700. Trash directory inside my home folder exists, and permissions are also correct.

    As for the base # switch, this is a much more significant difference. :) Thanks for the tips!
