Intel Mac :: HD Space Disappearing And Missing 100 GB Of Hard Disk Space?

Mar 21, 2012

Can anyone explain to me why, on my iMac's 500GB hard drive, the displayed size of the only 4 items on it is 207GB, that the info box on the HD itself says 393GB used?  Unless I failed grade 1 math, 500GB - 207GB = 293GB, right?  So where's the missing ~100GB?  That's a lot of space I know I haven't filled up.

iMac, Mac OS X (10.7.3), 24" 2.8 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo

OS X :: Time Machine Eating Disk Space / Eat GB's Of Hard Disk Space While Preparing Backup

Dec 11, 2009

whenever I run Time Machine on my PowerBook G4 (1.5 Ghz / 1Gb RAM / OSX 10.5.8) it will eat up GB's of hard disk space while 'preparing the backup'. After that it finishes the backup, but I don't get the space back. I'm talking about the internal HD, not the external target disk of course. Does Time Machine use the space to generate some temporary files? Any ideas how I can get my disk space back

Applications :: No Disk Space After Failed Disk Utility Erase Free Space?

Dec 15, 2010

I'm having a pretty serious problem. I attempted to erase the free space on my HD, as I do from time to time, except this time it appeared to hang/freeze at the end, when it gets to the part where it creates a temporary file. I waited for several minutes and it didn't move. I tried clicking the skip button, but that did nothing either, so I force quit Disk Utility.

The problem is, it left the disk at "Zero KB" of free space, effectively making my computer inoperable. I was in the process of studying for a huge exam tomorrow, and am currently flipping out.

If it matters, I'm on a Macbook Pro 2.33 GHz Core 2 Duo, running 10.4.

I really don't want to have to reinstall the OS and import the old files, but my real fear is that I will have to do a fresh install of the OS.

OS X :: IMac Running Out Of Disk Space?

Nov 7, 2010

My iMac has currently 40 GB out of 500GB left.

I have a 500GB external drive that has my Time Machine backup on.

What options do I have?

Most of my data is music & films. In Finder I like the way I can click Movies and there they all are.

My only option I can think of is to use my external drive as a place to put more films etc. Then buy a 1TB external drive and then somehow get Time Machine to backup both disks.

Would I lose the ability in Finder to click Movies and it show all Movies? I assume so because it can't look at 2 discs to find a folder I guess.

Are there any other options available?

MacBook Pro :: Its Running Out Of Disk Space

Apr 17, 2012

I have an older macbook pro runnig OSX 10.7.3.

120GB hard drive.

I have deleted content so that I have about 45GB of stuff I want to keep. My current user folder size is about 90GB.I have read the other posts on disks running out of space and none of that applies.

However, after poking around for ages, I found the following:

/Users/<username>/Library/Application Support/iLifeAssetManagement/assets/sub

is occupying over 34GB of space.

The content of the folder is a list of hex folder names (guessing an index) and each folder contains one photo Can I delete this?

OS X :: Memory Space Disappearing / Disk Space Reduces While Streaming Videos

Dec 2, 2009

I have been running out of hard drive space and have deleted a whole bunch of files... even deleted all the languages i didn't need from all my applications... about a week ago i freed up around 2GB.... but without saving and downloading anything my free space is now 70MB!! All I have been doing is watching streamed videos and I notice this reduces the drive space as I'm watching it!! Even opening firefox and some websites drops my memory by 0.1MB. I can't find anywhere where temporary files might be so i can delete them.

I never used to have this problem but I wonder if it has something to do with the fact that I now use wireless internet through a phone provider and a USB modem rather than my previous WiFi via cable broadband.

Can anybody shed some light on what is stealing my memory when browsing?

Cheers

Intel Mac :: Out Of Disk Space In Parallels?

May 30, 2012

I am using Parallels to run Windows 7 and am getting disk space errors. I think it only gave me 64 GB of disk space when I set it up. I'm not sure how to increase the disk space allocated to the Windows side of the machine. I use Finder>Applications>Utilities>Disk Utility to shrink the MAC OS x partition, but when I get there I'm unsure what to do.

MacBook Pro :: Recover Lost Disc Space

Jun 20, 2014

I have a MacBook Pro 10.6.8. I work with a lot of large files. When I'm done, I transfer these large files to an external hard drive, erase them from my lap top, and at least once a day, restart my computer, allowing for the formerly used disc space to be recovered. I occasionally will run ONYX and restart the computer, this also recovers lost disc space. Usually after restarting my computer there is between 100-150 GB of available space. My problem now is the space is not coming back. I'm down to 45 GB. Trash is empty. I've cleaned with ONYX, but the space is not recovering.

IMac (Intel) :: Moving Files To External Drive Not Creating Hard Disk Space

Sep 2, 2014

My 500gb iMac (purchased April 2010) is about at capacity.  350gb of space is taken up by home movies (.mov) in iMovie.  I bought an external hard drive and have moved about 200gb over to that drive. 

After transfer, I deleted the original Events off iMovie and emptied the trash.  I checked in both iMovie and in Finder and no longer see those files present on the Mac.   

I thought this was going smooth and everything worked perfectly, but….when i went to check how much storage space i created on the Mac, the amount of available space barely budged (i moved 200gb of data to the new drive and i created about 30gb of space on the Mac). 

Are these "deleted" files hidden somewhere and I need to go delete from somewhere else?  How do I make sure I get back the storage that i need?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Recover Free Space For An Existing Partition?

Mar 14, 2012

Up until recently, I had my MacBook Pro's hard drive in 3 partitions: 2 with Mac OS X, and one as a Bootcamp partition.  I recently decided that I no longer needed to Mac OS X partitions, so after backing up all the files in one of the partitions I went into Disk Utility and deleted that partition, hoping I could expand the other one to take the free space.  Unfortunately, now I have this area listed as "free space," and while I can make another partition in that space, I can't expand my existing partition to take advantage of it.  Is there a way for me to get this space back, or perhaps merge 2 partitions together? I'm just afraid of losing ~400GB of space.
