Intel Mac :: Shows Startup Disk Almost Full - Few Apps Installed

Jun 22, 2012

I have an iMac that is less than a year old and I have very few applications installed other than what comes on it. I recently received a message that my startup disk was almost full. I keep all of my media on an external drive, have an apple time machine that stores the backups. I purchased the Space Gremlin and there is nothing on the hard drive that shows it's taking up that much space. The 500 GB hard drive shows only 11 GB free.

iMac (21.5-inch Mid 2011), Mac OS X (10.7.4)

Intel Mac :: Startup Disk Is Showing Full?

Mar 10, 2012

I ran omnidisk sweeper and it shows I only have 39GB of used space.  However, when I check the info on the startup disk it shows that I only have 300mb-5GB left depending on the day.  I have deleted all unnecessary files that I can.  I can't really find anything else to delete.  I only have a couple programs installed that are pretty basic like word and excel.

Intel Mac :: Any Way To Upgrade OS X If Startup Disk Full?

Jul 5, 2012

My 2009 mac has been telling me the start up disk is full so I thought to save iphoto and itunes to an external drive. But I have been advised to upgrade the os first as I am still on snow leopard. Before I buy lion (I can't wait for mountain lion) can I upgrade while the start up disk is full? Or will it not let me (it won't do the updates that are coming through at the moment)? If I save iphoto and itunes to the external drive first will I still be able to access them/ properly?

Intel Mac :: Can't Update The Software - Startup Disk Is Full

Jun 16, 2012

I can't update my software as i keep getting the message that my start up disk is full - (mackintosh HD 1TB SATA disk) When i click on 'about this mac' - storage, almost every bit of space is taken up by 'other'. Hardly any audio, photos, video etc. I am a complete novice when it comes to things like this and thought it virtually impossible to fill a disk of this capacity!

OS X :: Startup Disk Full - Slowing Down Mac

May 5, 2010

I'm a fairly naive mac user and got my friend to instal my new harddrive.

It's big, with 320GB.

However, he set up a startupdisk partition, with a size of 20GB, called OSX.

For some reason this is now full and slowing down my MAC which is particularly annoying as I have college essays to submit very soon!

I've checked what is on my startupdisk and it is as follows:

Private 8GB
Applications 5GB
Library 3.5GB
System 2.3GB

I don't understand what this means but I have copied applications, library and system to my HD and tried to delete off startupdisk but it won't let me. say it is require by mac.

MacBook Pro :: Startup Disk Is Full?

Jun 17, 2014

My MacBook Pro gets a message when I first start up on my log in page.  When I then go to log in i just get a blank grey screen.  Any clues as to what I can do.  I've been downloading quite a lot of TV shows recently from ITunes and was going to move them to a external HD but I cant see anything.

MacBook Pro :: Startup Disk Is Almost Full

Sep 12, 2014

Something is going bad with my computer. Recently I have been getting the startup disk is almost full, but it is not. I have over a gig left and have tossed a bunch of stuff. I feel it was an email or something that was downloaded that is causing it to eat up all the memory. I have also done the Disk Utility and fixed it a couple times in a row. what is happening or what I can do to put my finger on it?

OS X :: Startup Disk Full After ITunes Updates

Dec 31, 2010

I have a problem with my macbook (OS X Snow Leopard) that just occurred today:

I ran a few itunes updates (amongst others a 1.6 GB navi software) and my startup disk turned out to be almost full. I tried to solve the problem by shifting movies and music to an external hard drive but suddenly my mac froze and I had to restart.

Since this moment, when logging in a am informed that I need to free disk space (Start up disk is full) but this is not possible because my dock is missing and all I get is a blank desktop (no clock, WLAN, Battery symbols in the upper right corner). All I can do is access safari and Qucktime over the recent items list and open preferences (They can still play movies and surf the web). The apple Logo in the upper left corner is still there, allowing access to the basic commands like shut down, log out, etc.

I tried rebooting with the OSX disc to access disk utility, ran disk restore and disk verify. Everything seems to be allright, I just can't erase data and free up space. The terminal commands don't work either, all I'm being given is this command line: -bash-3.2#. Any command I enter is "unknown".

OS X :: Startup Disk Full - Large Memory Available?

Jul 13, 2009

I was using my Macbook awhile ago and I got a popup message saying my startup disk is full, even though I have 84.05 gigs available. I figured it was a fluke and ignored it. A bit later, I was doing some stuff in Finder and noticed at the bottom where it says my drive's free space, it suddenly went from 84.05 GB free, to zero free, gave me the error message, and went back up to 84.05 gigs free, and it's done this a couple times...and the only thing I was doing was copying a 3 KB text file from a thumb drive. Anyone know WTF is up with that? It definitely is strange and I've never seen it before. I just ran a Verify in Disk Utility and everything checks out, no errors
