    I noticed my miserably small 320gb hd was getting flooded with files so I did some clean up. Notably music and video files.

    I dumped all the music files (sans itunes library) off to my fileserver which should've freed up 20gb of space. When I did a get info (cmd-I) again from the hd icon on the desktop, it didn't show any improvement even after a reboot.
    is there a way to refresh? I would hate to think it is an inadequate way of checking capacity and usage. How do I find out the truth?

    osx leopard.

    Did you empty the Trash already?

    iStat Menus and Finder are most of time accurate though, but if it still is missing the 20GB, try http://grandperspectiv.sourceforge.net/ and see for yourself where the space is gone to.

    That was a complete brain dead moment. Emptying the trash solved the problem Thanks!


    BTW: it was tough to admit that :)
