I tried to reinstall os 9.2.1 recently.
The installation takes about 290mb. When I start from the newly installed os, and check the info of the partition---it takes 680 mb of hd space. However, if I check the sizes of individual folders, the total is indeed 290mb. So where does the space go?
I even tried to install 9.2.1 on another partition, restarted from that, and check the size of the original partition I first installed. And the used space was, 290mb. But when I checked the 2nd partition itself, the used space was 650mb!

Help me! I'm so confused.
