● Note to Lion 10.7 users:
Starting from 10.7, local snapshot is switched on by default by Apple. Which means, Some space would have already taken as local backup hidden from the user. See an article in Apple's website...
"… You may notice a difference in available space statistics between Disk Utility, Finder, and Get Info inspectors. This is expected and can be safely ignored. The Finder displays the available space on the disk without accounting for the local snapshots, because local snapshots will surrender their disk space if needed... "
FreeSpace will report the available space with accounting for the local snapshots. This is the real free space you have without disturbing your local backups. When your disk is close to full, OSX will reclaim the space from your backup automatically.
