    Help! I have an external 1TB drive. I click "Get Info" on the drive and it says that 983GB of 1TB is used. However, when I click "Get Info" on the two subfolders in the drive, one says "600GB used" and the other says "30 GB" used. Where is my other 370 GB? I've emptied the trash and used disk utility to write zeros on free space. Also restarted. Any ideas?

    Use OmniDiskSweeper, JDisk Report or GrandPerspective to see how space is being used on your drive. Some of these apps may show more detail than others, so try several.

    That worked great, thanks! Fixed it. Used OmniSweep.
