    Invisible hard drive space
    I have a mid-2011 MacBook Air with the 251gb ssd, running 10.8.2

    I was getting tight on room with 35gb left and so erased all downloads and a forty gig iPhoto library, then emptied the trash.

    Finder tells me now that I have 92gigs free which is correct, but Disk Utility and System Utilities insist that I still only have 33gb free.

    I have reset the PRAM but this situation persists.

    So although the Finder knows how much room is free, the system won't let me re-import an iPhoto library bigger than 33 gb.

    This is behaviour I noticed on flashdrives with my previous Air, but I have not found any discussions that deal with it.

    Can anyone help? Thanks

    I should also add that FreeSpace and DaisyDisk both follow the Disk Utility info, which is incorrect
