    Where are you getting this info from? About This Mac, then More Info?

    Are you missing space or you just want to know what Apple is classifying "Other" as?

    In Activity monitor, the Disk Usage section shows the correct info?

    Not to tread-jack the OP, but I'm actually curious as to what the "Other" is classified as I have 81.57 GB of other. Taking a few filetypes I assume the OS won't know how to classify, I can only get about ~ 10-12 gigs accounted for.

    I have no idea. I went looking for answers when that is what I thought the OP meant. I could not find much, but gave up because my HD usage matches up with what I'm seeing in Activity Monitor and the daily.out cron task results, i.e Disk status:
    Filesystem Size Used Avail Capacity Mounted on
    /dev/disk0s2 465Gi 122Gi 343Gi 27% /

    Other can be whatever. Its just the System Profiler cannot identify what it reads.
