MacBook Pro :: When Deleted Files There Is No More Free Space

Dec 10, 2014

When I delete files there is no more free space.  I ran a Disk Utility repair in Safe Mode and it said some files were corrupt and some had the wrong size but it didnt fix anything.  It said to backup and restore/erase my mac.  I dont really trust the saftey of my files in a backup because I have had lots of trouble with apple. Last time I was there they said my computer was to old (I got it in 2012).  They also said they dont know whats is wrong with it and a bunch of other stuff, they just tried to get me to buy a new computer.

MacBook :: Start Up Disk Is Full / Even Though Yesterday I Deleted 1.5 Gigs Of Memory

Feb 3, 2012

Yesterday I deleted enough files to give myself at least 2 gigs of free memory and yet today when I opened up my macbook it tells me I have only 190MB left, and yet none of the files that I deleted remain on the computer, and my trash is completely empty.Does anyone know of any sort of 'Detox' kind of program or method to get the Macbook to reanalyse how much memory it really has left? It's done this before, but I haven't figured out a way to snap some sense back in the harddrive to remind it of the fact that it deleted those large files ages ago.

MacBook Air :: Start Up Disk Full - Deleted Items But Keeps Receiving Message

Apr 17, 2012

My mackbook air keeps telling me that my start up disk is full. I delete items daily but keep receiving the same message. I have found that the problem may be that items are being saved in multiple areas on my computer. I don't know why this is happening and so I don't really know which copies to delete and which to save.It this point I cant even get software updates or compress files since there is not enough space available at this time.

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.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Deleting Files Does Not Free Up Space On Hard Disk

May 14, 2012

I am deleting large amounts of files / directories with 10s of GB of disk usage from my internal hard disk.Then I empty the trash.But I don't get more free space on my hard disk!I am not using File Vault.(I also believe that my file system is not corrupt.)This is quite annoying, since I am still unable to copy stuff on my internal hard disk, but given the amount of files I have just deleted, I should be able to do so.

PS:MacBook Pro, 10.7.3, very recent model, 500 GB internal hard disk.

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 Pro :: Unable To Free Up Ssd Space / Deleted Tons Of Emails?

Sep 8, 2010

I just love my new MBP that came with Apple SSD in it. However, I have only 128GB SSD so I don't want to fill it up too quickly. Today, I deleted tons of old emails in the Mail app since I remember that doing so can free up some space in HDD in my iMac. Surprisingly, I found that after I deleted those emails and emptied the trash, the used space of SSD went from 40.45GB up to 40.51GB . That was not the end of the story because 10 minutes after that the used space came down to 40.48GB . I monitored the used space of SSD by istat pro, if that matters.

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 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.

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.

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.
