The article that I linked to above suggests that the local snapshots will be deleted if space is needed.

Quote:
You may notice a difference in available space statistics between Disk Utility, Finder, and Get Info inspectors. This is expected and can be safely ignored. The Finder displays the available space on the disk without accounting for the local snapshots, because local snapshots will surrender their disk space if needed.
I finally found some description of when these local snapshots are deleted
Quote:
In addition, regardless of space, Local Snapshots are periodically reduced to one per day after 24 hours, then deleted after a week.
You can find more details at Time Machine - Frequently Asked Questions 30. What are Local Snapshots?

Don't blame me if following this advice causes loss of data, a rip in space time allowing dinosaurs to roam free, or your significant other to leave.
