    Yosemite has a bug that can cause it to show wrong information in the Storage graphic. To fix it you need to reindex Spotlight (be patient it can take some time).
    Run the below command in Terminal to reindex Spotlight:
    sudo mdutil -E /

    Launch the Terminal app in your Utilities folder (Applications>Utilities).
    Copy and paste:
    sudo mdutil -E
    into the Terminal app window, hit enter, and then Quit the Terminal app.

    Be patient because it can take many hours for Spotlight to finish indexing your drive (depending on how much you have on your drive). The Mac will probably feel sluggish during reindexing as the mdworker and mds processes run and consume a lot of CPU and cause a lot of disk activity. You can launch the Activity Monitor app (also in the Utilities folder) to check the CPU usage and that mdworker and mds are running.
