Where Did all the GBs go? Phantom Gigs!

I used SD to copy my 250gig hard drive, which announced that it had 220gigs of stuff on it. But the new copy only has 150gigs on it. And then i used OmniDiskSweeper and it too, decided that the hard drive has only 150gigs on it. Any thoughts on what could be happening and how I find out what's going on?

Thanks!

G

Check your /Volumes folder with Finder's "Go To Folder" command. Any folders in there (not links or aliases)?

Check with Get Info to see how big it is -- that might be where your space is...

Well, I wouldn't Get Info on Volumes, but rather that backup folder. 66GB in /Library seems excessive...
