I’m on Mac OS 10.6.7 and I’m checking on my Time Machine backups (done via USB, not wireless yet). I wanted to know how much space these directories were taking up. According to my shell scripting knowledge, the directory in red should show in both usages the same size. But it doesn’t. Anyone out there who can explain what’s happening here? Am I doing something wrong?
