    Can you do a screen grab instead of a picture? It will be easier on the eyes and easier to read.


    What's your question specifically, why the TM shows different numbers then your local drive?

    That Backups is space used by Time Machine's local snapshots. Run this command in Terminal and tell us what it says for space used by this hidden folder where those snapshots are stored.

    Code:
    sudo du -hs /.MobileBackups
    If you cloned a disk, I could see it showing there, but it is odd for it to show on an external that you appear to be just using for media storage.
