I recently upgraded my 160gb drive to a wd3200bevt using superduper to clone the original drive. Now the Mac HD has 149gb free space which is correct but when I look in finder at "Places" which contains desktop, home, applications, documents, etc... it says I only have 5.4gb available. Why the drastic difference between Macintosh HD and Places?? Also I made the clone while signed into the guest acct on my comp, which is what Superduper tells you to do, I use File Vault for my personal acct. So when logged into the guest acct there is no difference between Mac HD and Places both show 149gb available space.
QUOTE Thanks
