how much is in your trash?

Try a reboot, and see if the amounts match then.

I've found that for the desktop info of your HD (assuming you mean the little label that goes under the 'Mac HD' title) is usually just taken when it boots up, had the same freaky experience not long ago. all it needs to do is re-boot as far as i know.
