    Hi there.

    Forgive me if this is a nonsense post but i just need some information.
    On my Macbook Air under "Storage" in "About This Mac" it says that my HDD is completely full with Apps. In fact is says its 260.46GB when there is only 120.12GB available on the entire mac.

    I have searched everywhere to make sure that my applications aren't using this much memory. My applications folder itself is only using something like 14GB.

    I was just wondering if this was a bug in the system. Is there anyway to make it show my actual amount of storage i have left? Anyway to fix it?

    Again, If I'm doing something really stupid i apologise.

    I have attached screen shots to help... Maybe.

    Thanks all :) :apple:

    Do yourself a favor and download the free utility "Disk Inventory X" from http://www.derlien.com/ - it will give you an accurate view as to what's actually consuming your disk space. The About This Mac overview is cute, but can be inaccurate.
