    Hi,
    I have a USB HFS formatted drive which is half full. When I open the Disk Utility it says that it is empty. When I get the info of the disk in Finder I get the correct usage.

    Do you know what's wrong ?

    Highlight the volume, not the disk in Disk Utility

    I think this is wrong. When you highlight a partition on the left you cannot select the "partition tab" anymore.

    What Tex-Twil wants to see is this

    It was just a guess. Also since the partition is not GUID, it may not work at all.
