    I've set the hard drive icon to have underneath the number of gigs free. However the amount is wrong. Finder says I have 16 gigs free, but the desktop icon says 9.9. Any reason for the discrepancy?

    It can take longer for that information to update. I've noticed that while having that feature turned on. If it's really bugging you, try restarting and see if it updates. A log-out and log-in might even do the same thing as the restart.

    I think even re-launching Finder from the Force Quit function in the Apple Menu will help. Of course, it's not cool to continually force quit a process. :eek:
