MacBook Air :: Storage Reporting Photos Are Taking Up Excessive Space

Aug 24, 2014

I can't seem to find out why my Mac is reporting such excessive storage use for "Photos". My iPhoto library says it's only about 1.47GB. Earlier today, I unchecked the option of importing photos from other locations to the iPhoto library, since we have an external hard drive that we use to store photos. 

Why it's reporting such high usage? In the screenshot is OmniDiskSweeper, which shows sizes of each folder. They definitely aren't adding up to the 92GB that it says is in use, unless all that extra data is coming from some folder I don't have permission to.

Software :: Why Need Excessive HDD Space To Import Photos To IPhoto

Sep 18, 2010

I've been trying unsuccessfully to import 8gb worth of photos directly from my DSLR (a Canon 40D with CF card) to iPhoto and it keeps telling me I've run out of HD space before it's finished even though I've over 15gb to start with. I tried again tonight after freeing my HD up to 29 gb and it got to about 90% of the files when iphoto crashed, but I was monitoring it in finder only to see my free space go from 29gb to 10gb. Why do I need more than twice the memory card capacity to import these photos?

MacBook Pro :: "Other" Category In Storage Taking Up Too Much Space

Jun 20, 2012

My Macbook Pro says that it has 300 GB taking up space in the 'other' category of the storage of my MACINTOSH HD. What can possibly take up 300 gb?? Is there a way that I can view the individual items that are taking up space in this 'other' category, or is there a way that I can erase them? My Macbook is always warning me that my "startup disk is almost full", because I do not have any remaining memory with 'other' taking up almost all of it. For this reason, my Macbook is running very slow at times, and is having many errors.

Mar 28, 2012

I have a macbook pro that's almost 2 years old now. When I checked storage, it said I have 187GB of Other storage. How can I find out what these files are? My HD seems to be running out of space. And Others is the only thing left for me to check.

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Disk Utility Not Reporting Space Correctly?

Feb 27, 2012

I often add very large files to my system before compressing them, sending them to clients, and then deleting them. This process leaves me constantly thinking about how much disk space I have free. Disk Utility, and an Apple approved app called DaisyDisk (space visualization) typically help me accompish this. Sadly, as of this week I seem to have a problem. When I went and looked the other day Disk U was telling me that 250gb of my 320gb drive is in use. This seemed high to me, but to be safe I thought I'd delete some files I didn't need. After deleting a bunch of videos, and a backup of my Main Identity (19gb) from my system, I'd assumed I had freed up about 24gb, but when I went back into Disk U it was still showing the same 250gb in use. Yes I rebooted my system, and made sure the trash was empty.

As I investigated further I did a get info on all 6 folders on the MacHD and they added up to about 170gb. That seemed more realistic, so I did a get info on my MacHD and again it showed the same thing 170 in use and 148.something available. Note: I have no partitions on this drive. But yet, still when I go to Disk U it seemed to be stuck at only 64gb free. Today when I went and looked again I am still seeing the same amount in use and free on the MacHD get info, but on Disk U now I am seeing 108 free and 211 in use. Why the difference? I would think Get Info was pulling from the same place as the mac disk utility.

MacBook :: OS X Mavericks (10.9.4) Apps Taking Up Storage

MacBook Pro :: 'Other' Taking Too Much Space?

Jul 4, 2012

I just ordered a new Macbook Pro (with Retina Display).It's my first MBP since 2007.I'm super excited about it, minus one glaring issue. My harddrive is the baseline 251 GB SSD. I've hardly used the thing besides loading some music and movies onto it. However, when I look at the'About this Mac' window, it says I'm using 51.89GB in Other.Compared to only 11GB in Movies and 2GB in Audio.It's hard for me to believe that the operating system takes up a whopping 50GB..How can I account for this Other section?

Macbook Pro Is Out Of Storage Space

Jun 10, 2012

I take tons of pictures and that is what's sucking up all of my memory. I currently have a 2011 Macbook Pro OS X Lion Version 10.7.4. 4 GB memory 2 GHz processor. Now that I look at the "About This Mac" it says all of my storage is "Other" with 0 KB in everything else like photos and apps which I know is false. Anyway, what should I do? Should I go to best buy and get a bigger memory? its currently 500 GB & 499.25 of that is filled up... What could I delete to free up space? Should I partition my photos onto an external hard drive?

Intel Mac :: Where Are Files Taking Up Storage

Apr 9, 2012

I just transferred my iTunes library from my iMac to a LaCie D2 Quadra external HDD. I followed the instructions on how to transfer the library and then delete the files from my iMac. I have approximately 400 GB of Music/Movies. The transfer worked seamlessly and everything is showing up in iTunes. 

I then went into "about this Mac", more options, and then selected storage to see the allocation of my hard drive. It has freed up the majority of the 500GB HDD on my iMac, however it still shows some files. The largest allocation it still has is under Movies, according to the color coding at the bottom. It still show 40GB allocated here. I looked through all of my documents and folders in Finder and cannot find what files are still taking up this space. 

how to locate what files these are? I moved everything to an external HDD to free up the space on my iMac. I understand 40GB is not that much out of 500GB but still would prefer not to be wasting space.

MacBook Air :: More Storage Space - Another Wireless HD?

May 8, 2009

It came the time i knew it was going to come when i bought by MAB rev.1: I need more storage space. So far, I have been burning all movies on DVDs, but now i need space for music and pics. What is your advice? I do not want to buy a wired device, because MAB has only one USB port. At the same time they told me that the Time Capsule does not really work very well, and i do not really need another wireless router anyways. Would you guys reccomend another wireless HD? Which one? Or, put differently, what solution did you go for?

I've only had my macbook for about 3 weeks, and already it's saying I've reached like 110GB. That can't be right though, cause I've only used like 50GB worth of space. I've searched and searched through my Hard Drive to see what's taking the space. But can't find anything. Is there like a program I can download to see all the large files on my Macbook?

MacBook Air :: Is Running Out Of Space - System Taking 60 GB?

Sep 4, 2014

My wife's 128GB MBA is running out of space so we are trying to identify the culprits by using the marvelous Daisy Disk. 

Her user account is taking up 43 GB (mainly music and photos) but the total for the HD is 103 GB. Does that sound right - that the system and other stuff (although not sure what that would be) takes up 60GB?

MacBook :: Deleted Files Still Taking Space?

Jun 23, 2014

I had a folder with about 11.5 gb worth of files in it. I copied this file to an external hard drive, and deleted the copy on my desktop.

I emptied the recycle bin and could see no trace of this file, yet the space is still being taken on my hard drive (only 2 gb available).

How can I delete the stupid file so that my space is back?? I have already disabled time machine, as this was the only solution I could find. I have restarted my rMBP multiple times, and even started in safe mode to see if the files would appear there for emptying in the trash bin. Nothing was there in the trash bin. I have run out of solutions. I have Cleanmymac2 and have run the automated system cleaner with the external attached and without it attached. (This external BTW is NOT the one that I do backups with time machine to). I have also verified my mac partition as well as the internal hard drive with disk utility and show no errors. 

I know this has nothing to do with time machine, as I moved the folder to my hard drive this morning, watched it take 11.5 gb of space, then moved it, and saw the space remained the same.
