Intel Mac :: Increase Free Space On Startup Disc?

Jun 5, 2012

I've backed up all the contents of my computer to a 1TB external hard drive connected by USB (LaCie Porsche). Time Machine is working perfectly with it! Now, I want to erase lots of files from the startup disc or do whatever I need to do in order that I might have way more available memory on the startup disc. I need to know that my backups of iPhoto are truly on the external drive, and then I need to do something so that the memory available on my desktop is maximized.

Info:iMac, Mac OS X (10.7.2)

OS X :: Incredible Speed And Free Space Increase With Snow Leopard

Aug 31, 2009

Strange as it may seem, when I installed Snow Leopard, I immediately freed almost 40 gig on my Macbook pro (can't imagine why) and speed was increased by a factor of 2-3 times. One more thing is that parallels is now "almost" as fast as a native program, especially with Quicken for windows, which is the only reason that I use parallels.

OS X :: Disc Inserted Does Not Have Enough Free Space?

Aug 19, 2010

I am having difficulty burning a dmg file to a blank disc. I have a macbook pro with OS X 10.5.8. I am using disk utility to attempt this feat but it is being difficult. The blank disc is a 702 MB and the image is ~540 MB. When I attempt to burn the image onto the blank disc, it says the disc inserted does not have enough free space. 1) The disc is blank. 2) The image is less than the capacity of the disc. I tried another blank disc and it still reports the same issue. The blank discs work just fine in Windows and it reports it as such. Why is Mac OS reporting there is no free space when, in fact, there is?

MacBook Air :: Free Up Space On Startup Disk?

Apr 19, 2012

I'm getting a message my startup disk is full. My macbook air is not even a year old and when I check my storage status, my media, applications and files make up for less than a tenth of my content. However, I have nearly 110GB of "Other" type stuff that is occupying my disk. I have had no luck searching for the source of these "other" files in my Finder and all the Youtube videos and internet question responses have not helped me.

OS X :: Running Out Of Space On Startup Disc - Recovered On Reboot?

May 28, 2009

On my Macbook Pro (Tiger) I suddenly got an error message about running out of space on the start up disc (woking on a word 2008 document). Checking suggested I had only 124MB left.

A couple of days earlier I had 60gb free. Deleting a few gb of programs reduced the space to zero!

I couldn't work out were the space was being used but as most programs were now refusing to work. I just shut down.

On switching back on, the HD space had come back and I had my 60gb of free space back.

whether its a sign of a problem I should try and sort out, or is it just "one of those things".

OS X :: No Free Space - Erase Free Space Interrupted

Mar 20, 2009

Yesterday I apparently interrupted Disk Utility when it was erasing free space, which was far bigger than the used space on my beloved black Macbook. Apparently the free space, because the program was interrupted, is seen as one honking big file.

This morning, the disk utility tells me that I have zero free space. Verify says I do not need repair. I checked because of all my sudden problems (I am unable to save anything to the laptop, unable to cut-and-paste . . . and unable to erase free space again since there officially isn't any, etc.).

Trash is empty.

I tried (based on advice in another thread) to reboot with the installation disk so as to use its disk utility program, but the installation disk menu offers "install" etc. but not (as far as I can tell) just access to its disk utility.

I plugged in my Timemachine external drive [WD MyBook], but the most recent "save" there has the "restore" button greyed out. That's scary.

I'm willing to do a complete re-install if necessary, but I hope that one of you has a simpler solution that will simply get my free space back.

OS X :: Skipped Erase Free Space, No Space On HD?

Apr 23, 2009

I managed to interrupt the computer when I selected the "Erase Free Space" option. I had 0GB left on the computer and had to cancel almost all of the applications. I Googled and found that /var/root/Library/Caches/TemporaryItems should locate the file when entered in Terminal, but whenever I try that, it just says "Permission denied." It only asked for a password once, and when I tried entering it, it said that there was no such file. I located a few other temporary files and deleted those, and also tried making empty folders on the desktop to empty the trash. It freed up 6.7 GB, but there's still a lot of space missing. I'm not sure what else to try or how to get the space back.

Mac :: Increase The HD Space - Way To Design Windows?

Sep 3, 2009

if I want to increase the HD space I designated to Windows, how do I do so? I can easily adjust RAM and what not... but HD space seems fixed? I'm worried about running out.And my other question is... why is 256MB VRAM the max I can allow? According to microsoft's website... 128MB is the minimum recommended amount for Vista Ultimate... and my MBP only has 256MB on it.. so will maxing it out at 128 (max as in it's all vbox will allow) be ok for both windows and my mac? (I'm assuming it then only gives Mac OS 128MB
