    Hi.. I have a password protected disk image saved (its a dvd size so 8 gbs around there). I have deleted many things out of it and the folder size still only lets me say there is half a gig left. I know after the deletes that there is around 6 gigs left in space. Is there any way to make the diskimage update so it really knows how much space is availible within it? thanks for the help... I love Mac, just need to understand it all...

    You probably need to empty the trash. Dragging items to the trash doesn't get rid of them in the size calculation, since they're still intact and recoverable.
