    I have some files that show wrong size. For example i have an application Its shows Size: 1.31GB but theres a folder inside of there that is around 9.1GB. How come? I have repaired everything through disk utility, no errors whatsoever. Restarted, logged out and in again. killall Finder, And tried some other processes that wouldn't really make a difference like killall SystemUIServer and killall Dock.

    Anyone know what to do?

    EDIT: BTW i have not done a finder plist reset but i don't want to either.

    seems it's not updating properly... you could DRAG the com.apple.finder.plist & finder.plist.lockfile to the desktop, reboot. see how that goes. (you could always put them back)...

    EDIT: try this first: delete the com.apple.finder folder from your User>Library>Cache folder; reboot...
