The freespace indicator, as far as I know isn't reporting the correct amount of free space with the same amount of data several days ago. I had deleted over 60 gb of data and the free space didn't show it all it all. It remained the same and the trash was emptied. I used time machine to go back to yesterday before I had the huge files that started occupying my drive and the freespace seemed to be right. I then deleted some more disc images and the free space didn't really change. And also on iStats, the Used and Free indicators was changing by the second, as if something was being added to the disk. It's a lot slower now after it occupied around 12GB of the space it had since I booted it from my time machine backup. The deletion of about 8-9 GB of disc images also didn't affect the space indicators. What's going on? I've fixed done the permission fixes twice now and still doesn't work. It was fine just yesterday. It's a 256GB Crucial M4 with the recent 0309 Firmware.
