    Hi All,

    this may be an old issue, but have not found any suitable references.

    30GB HD PBG3 running 10.3.3

    partitioned into 2x15GB

    the main partition is HD A (with OS); the Finder reports 12.15 used,
    lists only 1.86GB available, capacity 13.97
    yet OmniDiscSweeper, in an effort to ID and remove wasted space, reports
    only 5.1GB used for the root /
    Am I misunderstanding the root?
    have run fsck -f at startup, and MacJanitor, with little change.

    The second partition figures seem correct.

    Am I missing aproximately half my space or mis-interpreting? A pointer
    to relevant info would be appreciated
