Unaccounted for space on hard drive mac

macos - Wrong available storage reported for mac os - Super User

Specs: OS I haven't been able to figure out a scenario to replicate them though JPH wrote: Have you emptied the Trash recently? I emptied it before the screenshot. I've had some space issues on Lion: viewtopic. That program should be able to tell you where everything is. If you prefer to stick with freeware, JDiskReport also does a good job of showing you where that used space is going. Wow, DaisyDisk is righteous! Post 4.

Merging a couple of threads about this question and making the merged thread a sticky. JKT's answer is spot on - OmniDiskSweeper can only see or delete files that the current user has access to, and it sounds like your user account doesn't have the proper permissions to see the other files on your hard drive.

Those files may be owned by other users, or may be owned by the system itself. Since Apple wrote the code for the Finder, they trust it with information about your hard drive that they don't trust other applications with. Post 5.
