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.

Info:
MacBook Air, Mac OS X (10.7.3)

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.

MacBook Air :: Free Up Disk Space?

Mar 27, 2012

I clicked Disk Utility, then Macintosh HD and moved the mouse a bit leftside; at that point, I discovered that I can't click "Erase free space", but it shows "Erase free space not available on this type of disk drive". I don't know why it happened. Also, my disk storage is full though I never installed many memory-consuming  applications and media files. It just shows "others" that dorminates the whole memory storage.

MacBook Pro :: OS X 10.6.8 - No Free Disk Space

Jun 21, 2014

Version: 10.6.8
Capacity: 11.5 GB
Model: Macbook Pro 13" from June 2009 

I recently have been having issues with my computer and had to get a new hard drive. I installed it myself after purchasing from crucial.com. The order says I got a 500GB Momentus (I know it is not an SSD). I had to get my computer completely wiped of its memory when they were going through the initial problems at the Genius Bar. This means I should have a ton of free space to my knowledge.

When I look at my Macintosh HD info it says that I have 0 KB of available space. When I try to download anything (like Adobe Flash Player) it says that I have no available free disk space. I believe I should have a lot of free space. I am thinking I may have done something wrong while installing the hard drive, but I followed a tutorial and it seemed simple.

MacBook Pro :: How To Free Up Disk Space

Dec 2, 2014

how to free up disk space.  I have a 250GB MacBook Pro-2013.  I have a 2TB Time Machine back-up hard drive.  Photos take up 50GB, videos 60GB, music 30GB.  My Time Machine backs up my computer each time it is plugged into an adapter and on my home network. Should I move all my photos and videos  of family to the cloud?  Do I need another external hard drive to store photos, videos and music on?  I have emptied trash, deleted unused apps, deleted old documents and deleted old iMessages.

MacBook Pro with Retina display, OS X Yosemite (10.10.1)

OS X :: Free Up Local Disk Space On MacBook?

Aug 1, 2007

OK, so I am completely new to mac. The last time I used a mac computer was when my family had one around 1994/1995. So, I don't know how to do completely basic things like this.

I got my macbook on Saturday, less than a week ago. Last night I bought the Sims 2 at the apple store and I asked the guy if it would run good on it. He went through all of the requirements and said that my computer surpassed all of them.

So I go to run it and it won't run and says I need to free up local disk space. Basically I'm wicked pissed right now and am worrying that something is wrong with my computer or he was lying and I can't return it. How do I free this up? Is it a big deal that I need to do this after having the computer for less than 5 days? This is the only big program I've installed so far. I've only installed basic stuff like office and my printer so I don't know how it could be out of space already.

Intel Mac :: Increase Free Space On Startup Disc?

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.

MacBook Pro :: Why Doesn't Disk Space Free Up After Moving Files To An External Drive

Feb 28, 2012

I have a 750GB internal HD but film a lot of movies. To free up space, I have moved my iMovie clips off to a secondary hard drive, but I have not seen my free disk space free up on my Macbook pro. Why is this? I moved, not copied the files. They only show now on the external hard drive. I am looking at the free space in Finder > Get Info. I have easily moved a few hundred GB off to the new drive, but my internal HD still shows as over 500Gb used.

MacBook Pro
