    Hey everyone!

    I got an issue with my Macintosh HD in my macbook and I think I can illustrate it best with a screenshot


    The space available gives completely different values. Somewhere there is a problem here and I really don't know how to fix this. I've tried repairing the HD with the disc utility but that didn't solve the problem.

    I hope you guys can help!

    Sounds like you have Time Machine turned on and the space difference is due to Time Machine's local backups. You can read about it here.

    Relevant part below.
