I just copied images 7.37 GB that a friend sent on a CF card 1400 images.

I deleted about 3/4 of the images down to about 350.

The folder now says in the finder 7.53 GB.

I emptied trash, and rebooted, and it still says it's 7.53GB. Any one know what this is going on? Thanks.

And, thanks, NO, the folder was 7.37 on CF card, and I just did a 2nd copy to hardrive and it confirms that. 7.37 hardrive before trimming (1400 images)

I just looked this morning and surprisingly after the 3/4 trim from 1400 images to 400 still says the trimmed folder is 7.53 GB. It's maddening.
