    Hello all!

    I've got a 2011' MBP a few month ago with a 128Go SSD.

    This morning my SSD was full and I deleted some files. Then I checked the info of the SSD which says :
    Capacity: 120.47 GB
    Available: 12.54 GB

    which is good (data = 100GB). But when I use Daisy Disk or sums up the "Get Info" of the folders in the SSD I end up with 62GB of data.

    So I cleaned up everything with CCleaner, I stopped the local Time Machine backups (I think it was already stopped), I stopped the Sleep Option (in order to delete the sleep image and save 4GB). I rebooted. And I had the same problem. When I checked the info of the SSD I have :
    Capacity: 120.47 GB
    Available: 17.03 GB

    Here's the screens :
    - Daisydisk: http://cl.ly/2h1r2s2h1c0z342V3j38
    - "sudo du -hs /" in terminal: http://cl.ly/2i0d423i1u1T0I2t3l2B
    - SSD quick look: http://cl.ly/3O3l1f2u243124133F29
    - Get Info of all folders in /: http://cl.ly/45111Q1g3g0x0R2G2x1T

    As you can see there is around 45GB of data missing/lost between the occupied space from a quick look and the total of all the folders.

    Can someone explain me what can it be?

    Thank you

    PS: Sorry for my English, not my native language.

    Use OmniDiskSweeper to scan your hard drive and provide a sorted list of files/folders

    wierd. sometimes it seems like a lion thing to me honestly. like it takes a while to catch up. because before i reinstalled my OS and disabled local snapshots i was noticing an increases "other" bar in the about this mac as well.

    try this Onyx

    run the sweep and clean everything out then reboot. I use this app all the time

    I'm afraid nothing changed :/

    Should I go to an Apple Store?

    Sorry, I have no clue what is going on. Solutions would be either to have someone look at it or to wipe & format the SSD, reinstall Lion and restore the system from backup. Check the size of the backup before restoring!

    Did you try to partition recently?

    Have you tried running Verify Disk in Disk Utility?

    Also can you tell me what df -h prints out in terminal?

    and

    sudo du -d1 -h /

    The SSD seems ok. I did not try to partition or format it.

    I'm starting to consider the possibility that the SSD is broken. Any Apple store nearby?

    Agreed, given that the OP has exhausted all possible causes and possible solutions. The next step is have apple look at it.

    Running into the same problem

    Hi, I have exactly the same problem. Did you find any solution? Wonder if it's connected with full disk encryption?

    I had the same problem recently and solved it using Repair Disk in Disk Utility. You will need to boot from your recovery partition to do so. Should work like a charm unless your drive is failing.

    Try grand perspective. It displays all the files on a map according to size. It helps find a lot of large unnecessary files.

    If all else fails I would just copy with ccc the whole drive to the external.
    Reformat and copy back.
