Windows On Mac :: Getting Hard Drive Space Back - After Deleting Boot Camp Partition

Dec 27, 2009

I recently got rid of a partition I had made for bootcamp since I never use it, and would rather have the space back. I deleted the partition through disc utility, and then through the partition tab, tried to get back that space by dragging down the tab to restore the space originally set for the partition. When I go to apply this change, it notifies that my hard drive will be re-sized. I accept and then a few minutes later it comes back with the error "Partition failed with the error: Filesystem verify or repair failed" Does anybody know how I can restore this space successfully back into my main hard drive? I've attached some screenshots

OS X :: Getting Hard Drive Space Back On Windows Partition?

Jul 15, 2009

I really need to free up space on the windows partition of my Mac so that I can install certain software I need in order to complete a project due really soon. What would be the best way to accomplish this (I'd rather not increase the partition w/ a third party app)? I was thinking the best is to eliminate unnecessary files that I am pretty certain were installed as part of the Vista install so that I can recover as much HDD space on the windows partition as possible, but don't know what I can eliminate safely? Can someone please offer some ideas and very basic steps of where to find any of the items you reference?

MacBook :: Hard Drive Full - Deleting Stuff To Free Up Space

Dec 20, 2009

Not sure, but for some reason my mac hard drive has got to be 95% full. I know where all the things I put on my laptop are and have added them up and they do not equal up to 132 GB of space. I have deleted the Previous Systems folder which was taking up a lot of space. Where are there more mysterious locations that are taking up space that are not needed and safe to delete?

MacBook Pro :: Hard Drive Partition Space Lost?

Apr 12, 2012

I have a 17 inch MBP running Lion and Windows 7 with a boot camp partition. My mac side has 500GB of space, and my windows 7 partition has 250GB. Recently I shrunk my disk space on the windows 7 partition by going to Control Panel->searching "partition" and shrinking it, so now my boot camp partition has 132GB. However, I thought that space was going to be moved to my Mac OS X partition, but it didn't. Where is that memory space? It can't be flat out lost, can it? I also tried expanding it back but I can't click that option. I really do not want to lose those 118gigs. I know it doesn't sound like a lot, but I really need it.

MacBook :: How To Get Back Free Space On HD

Jan 2, 2010

I would like to gain back some space on my Macbook's HD. I would like to:

1) Burn all the photos and videos on DVD's. Re this, once burned, I'll delete them from the HD, via iPhoto.(show files, etc.) What would happen with the events? Say that, in the future, I want to import 20% of the photos with their corresponding events (already deleted from iPhoto): is this feasible?

2) Is there an app within Leopard OS (not Snow Leopard) that would allow me to change photo and video size, all at once or not. (batch processing?) Videos and photos where imported within iPhoto app.

OS X :: Deleting Items From Memory Stick (to Free Up Space)

Dec 27, 2010

If I delete a file from a memory stick- it does not free space. This is because the item has been moved to the trash and it hasn't been permanently deleted. If I want to free the space I need to empty my trash. If I don't want to empty my trash how can I delete a file from a memory stick to free space (permanently delete just 1 file)? Also (sort of linked) - how do I just delete 1 file from trash (empty just 1 file)? The reason I like to keep trash for a while just incase I need to restore a file, if I know I will not need to restore it, then I want to permanently delete just that file.

OS X :: Deleting Files Frees Up Space In Time Machine?

May 6, 2009

Last week I was doing some late night backing up of some DVD's I own. (7x7GB).

I MTR'd them to get the video_TS folders on my desk top, so I could toast them back on to DVDs,

I tought I may as well put them on to my iPhone, so I re-encoded them into MP4 (7x500MB), then copied them into iTunes (again 7x500MB).

I reaslied today that I forgot to turn off Time-machine when I was doing all this and my backup grew by 60 GB!!


If I go into Time-machine and track down these video files and "deleate all instances" of them, will it free up the 60 GB on my external drive for Time-machine to be able to back upu more vital stuff?

Applications :: Didn't Get More Space After Deleting Winclone Backup?

Nov 19, 2009

I recently deleted a Winclone backup on my Macintosh HD partition. It says I have 34.69 GB when I really should have 74.78. 40.09 GB difference.

My Partition Capacities:
Macintosh HD - 168.88 GB
Windows 7 - 54.43 GB
Backups - 26 GB
Applications Folder Size - 12.69 GB
My User Folder - 67.65 GB (Don't judge me. =D)
System Folder - 4.63 GB
Library Folder - 9.13
[The total of those is 94.1]
Then that should leave me with 74.78

See the problem? I've tried restarting the computer, but that didn't help.

MacBook Air :: Time Machine Back Up Not Enough Space?

May 6, 2012

I just tried to back up my Mac Book Air and I use OS X 10.7.3.   

I got a message which said that there was not enough space on my external hard drive.   The message said that I needed 50 GB and the external drive only has 43 of space... Note, when I check out the hard drive, it says:  ""Available 43.63 of 249.93". 

The sole purpose of my hard drive is for back up purposes.  So,  there isn't anything other data or information on the drive..

Applications :: Freeing Up Space By Deleting Music From Time Machine?

Apr 24, 2009

I just got an external hard drive because I have thousands of songs that my macbook cannot hold.

I am using Time Machine to put everything on my external but I was wondering....if I delete the music on my computer so that I just have it on my external - will Time machine delete it off my external when it automatically updates since it is no longer on my computer?

I want to download more music but am scared of losing any old music.
