    My disk space is all wrong, does anyone know how to fix? I've already tried to repair disks and permissions and reindex spotlight.. it's an annoying bug.
    Thanks for any help.

    Launch Disk Utility and take a screen shot of what is shown and post it.

    Did this happen after installing a supplemental update?

    It looks like your hard drive is configured as core storage. Maybe that is why it is reporting the storage the way it is.

    No, I haven't installed any updates lately. I do have 10.10.4 in my App Store updates list, but i haven't installed it yet, i'm gonna wait for the official release. But maybe installing it will fix this problem?

    What does that mean?

    That graphic is just off because your Spotlight index is corrupt.

    Run this command in Terminal and wait for Spotlight to reindex then check the storage graphic again and you should see that it is correct. The reindex can take up to an hour or so if you have a lot of data.

    Code:
    sudo mdutil -E /

    Thanks! This worked for me. Since the last Yosemite update, my hard drive has been saying I have 140TB free.
