    My data is around 60-70GB but it says that I ve used around 102GB....?

    I delete data and nothing changes.... the free space stays the same.

    I did a spotlight re-index and nothing changed.

    This has been an ongoing issue for many people. At this point, there has been no resolution that I am aware of.

    It happened with me when I was using a separate partition. I got tired of it and went with Yosemite on a single partition. I haven't had the problem since. If I do, it will be much easier to deal with this way. Hopefully, the next DP will have a fix.

    I believe that that represents Time Machine backup files of some kind? Not positive.

    I updated my Yosemite to PB3 and my storage was normalized again instead of what you guys are seeing.....
