Hi,

I just wanted to check my SSD space on my MacBook Pro and realized that the used "system" space doesn't load (as you can see in the pic).

The wheel just keeps spinning and spinning. Restarting didn't help.

Does anyone know how I can fix this?

Thanks and many greets
Chris

Run this command in Terminal and give it a half our or so to complete. That will reindex Spotlight that can fix that bad storage readout.

Code:
sudo mdutil -E /

Thanks for the answer. When I entered the command I got the message "Indexing enabled". I will let you know if it worked.
