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

OS X :: Something Keeps Eating Up My HDD Space?

Aug 25, 2010

I've got a problem that is really getting on my nerves now and I have no idea what is causing it.

Basically I will have switched on my MBP with around 2-3GB of HDD space free, and after working on it for around 2-3 hours with applications that shouldn't demand any space whatsoever (Firefox, Safari, Preview), I get that little OS X error that tells me I have limited space left.

As I mentioned before I have no idea why this is happening. Has anyone experienced anything similar, as I'm desperate for a solution. I can't keep deleting important personal files every few hours in order to keep the system running.

Software :: Slowly Losing Disk Space - How To Get Back

Feb 4, 2010

I've noticed in the last few days that I've been gradually, but steadily losing disk space.

I've not downloaded any files bigger than a few Kilobytes (that I've kept) and all my email is IMAP, not POP, so I'm not actually downloading any mails.

A couple of days ago, my disk space available at the bottom of the Finder window said 152.36GB. Today it says 151.45GB.

I've checked my Download directory and other areas for any new data that I might have absent-mindedly downloaded and kept that I don't need, but haven't found anything.

Is there something else I should be checking and clearing from time to time?

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 :: 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 :: 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.

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.

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..

MacBook Pro :: Quicktime--Shockwave--eating Up RAM

Apr 5, 2012

I have a program called Free Memory.It shows you how much available RAM you have left to use.  Last week, my available RAM, which is usually somewhere between 3GB-5GB, was down at about 250MB!  I checked the RAM usage in Activity Monitor, and it showed that Quicktime was using about 5GB of RAM.  Yes 5GB.I closed Quicktime and the RAM jumped back up.I reopened it and I could actually watch as my RAM just poured off.  In less than 2 minutes, it went from 5GB available to about 100 MB again.Today, the same thing happened, but the RAM sucker was Shockwave.  Has anybody heard of this happening before?  If so, what is the solution?Here is some more info.  In the "console" I often get these --- Exception Type:

EXC_BAD_ACCESS (SIGBUS)A few months back, the Genius Bar people wiped my hard drive clean and we reloaded my stuff from a back up.  Maybe there are still issues.

MacBook :: It Keeps Eating Her Hard Drives

May 17, 2012

My gf's old Black MacBook keeps eating her hard drives. So far she's gone through 5! Last one died just sitting in the living room floor. I'm wondering what could be wrong, I'm thinking maybe a bad logic board? I've bought her a MacBook Air to replace it but I'd like a project trying to fix that old MacBook.

MacBook Pro :: Disk Space Just Going Down?

Mar 3, 2012

I always seem to be losing disk space.  Now it is silly, I am not adding any files to the computer but it just goes down.  I have purged all cache files for lightroom, photoshop, final cut render files deleted.  I restart my laptop and note the disk space, say 2 gb left, then an hour later i get the pop message no disk space left and check my Mac HD and it says 230MB or even Zero.  I delete a few files, empty trash, restart machine and it does the same thing again. 

I recently updated to os x 10.6.8 and on updating got an extra 30gb or so which has just been eaten up without really adding much in the way of files that would take this space, so something is just taking the space, i feel it is some kind of virus as such as it goes so quick and without downloading any files that are large. 

Is there something I can do as I am trying to run my mac with no space.  The problem with deleting things are is that it seems to just keep automatically losing disk space so it is a vicious cycle.

Final Cut Pro 7

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 :: 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?
