My macbook pro only has 150 GB of hard drive space, yet when I click "get info" on my username in the finder it says I am using 221 out of 319 GB. However, when I do the same for Macintosh HD, the correct usage is displayed. Why would this be happening?

Get Info yields no such information for me. (OS 10.5.8)
What does Activity Monitor tell you about Space utilized and Space free?
