In Finder, every single file on my disk is classified under the "Other" section. However, when I go to "about this Mac", it shows only a fraction of my disk is actually "Other".
How do I fix this? And does this have any other harmful consequences?
I have tried clearing the NVRAM and PRAM. I've tried rebooting and deleting the Finder preferences. I've updated Mac OS X. None of those fixed it.
Edit: this only happens with my account so it probably can't be anything wrong with CoreServices. Maybe a messed up setting?
Here's an example screenshot of how things look:
