This is not a very bothering problem but still it is weird.
I'm running Mac OS 9.0.4, and according to the what's displayed in all the windows, there are 17 Go available on my hard drive. What's strange is that the real space available on my hard drive (that used to be displayed correctly) is 2 Go.
The incorrect value began to appear some days ago, and I don't understand what could've happened.
Anyone could help ?

Go?
Have you run a disk repair utility on the suspect drive?

Not yet actually.
I'll give it a try.

Thank you Cipher. The Apple disk utility worked wonderfully. I should have tried this much sooner...
