MacBook Pro :: Available Space On Computer Disappearing For No Reason?

May 23, 2012

I have been sitting in front of my computer for the last 20 minutes and in that time my available GB went from 27.4 to 26.75. The space available keeps slowly diminishing. The only program I have running now is  Firefox, I closed everything else, I am not downloading anything. And yet something is eating space in my computer!  

Info:
MacBook Pro 5,1, Mac OS X (10.5.8)

MacBook Pro :: Disappearing HDD Space With Time / Less Space Showing In Finder

Dec 28, 2010

Wirelessly posted (Mozilla/5.0 (iPhone; U; CPU iPhone OS 4_2_1 like Mac OS X; en-us) AppleWebKit/533.17.9 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/5.0.2 Mobile/8C148 Safari/6533.18.5)

I have the MacBook Pro 2010 13" and recently I've noticed my disc space is slowly decreasing with use.

Im not downloading files or anything, but today I lost around 600 MB of space, I just kept opening my Finder to discover less and less disc space each time.

Is this normal or do I have a problem, this is the first time I've noticed it in the month and a half I've owned the machine.

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.

iMac, Mac OS X (10.7.3), 24" 2.8 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo

MacBook Pro :: Disappearing HDD Space

Aug 16, 2010

I have a mid 2009 MacBook Pro (13 inch) 2.53 GHz (Core 2 Duo) with 4 GB RAM. I have a problem- I am sure that I have only used about 15GB space. I have no apps above 1GB. I also have a BootCamp partition. When I click on my OSX (Snow Leopard 10.6) partition (Macintosh HD), the capacity shown is 215GB and remaining is 158GB. About 40GB space just vanished! I used OmniDiskSweeper. The results were that there was 34.1GB being used in Users>.Tusing>Tusing.sparsebundle>bands. In "bands", there are hundreds of 8MB files. What should I do with them? Are they important? Can I delete them? Thank you for your help. I am new to this site. If you do not have an answer, please bump this thread (if thats possible in this forum). UPDATE: I can't see the hidden files in Finder, so should I use defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles -bool true to see them? UPDATE: I will keep FileVault on.

MacBook Pro :: Lost Very Large Amount Of Disc Space For No Apparent Reason?

May 11, 2012

I have 750GB MacBook Pro and up until the other day I showed 250GB used and 500GB unused. I discovered this because the past two days my computer would just freeze and I couldn't do anything. So I ran the Disc Utility and it found some errors and fixed them. So I'm wondering if the 400GB of lost disc space now has something to do with the computer locking up? I've searched all the folders and added up their size and still come back to 250GB that I can see. So I'm assuming there's something hidden somewhere that's eating up over half my hard disc space?

MacBook Pro :: Available Space On Hard Drive Is Slowly Disappearing

Apr 1, 2012

Today when I tried to use my computer, I got an error message saying that my startup disk was almost full. This was weird because just a week before when I checked it, I had almost half of my 500 GB hard drive available. I went and deleted a bunch of stuff I didn't need, and restarted the computer, and I got my hard drive space back up to 221 GB of free space. Only a few minutes later, I looked at it again and I only had 211 GB. Throughout the day, my available space has slowly been going away. The nights almost over and now I only have 186 GB left.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Have Noticed That HDD Space Is Just Disappearing?

May 2, 2012

I have noticed that my HD space is just disappearing. I have turned off Time Machine Snapshots, so that is not the source of problem. When I go to "About Mac" and "More Info" and Storage it is showing "Others" as taking about 170 GB. The only notable software I have installed are MS Office and HP Printer utilities. Any way to check that is eating up my hard disk space?

MacBook Pro :: Increase Harddrive Space - Faster Computer?

Jun 12, 2010

I am thinking of buying a MBP, and I want to do my research correctly .

I want to get the base model (the 2.66ghz seems like a ripoff...), but upgrade the harddrive space. If I increased it from the 240gb to the 500gb, would that make my computer faster? Or what would the effects of it be? I am just wondering to see whether I should go for he 500gb or the 320gb...I do not want to get the SSD since they are pretty expensive at this point.

MacBook Air :: How To Delete Files To Free Up Computer Space

Jun 20, 2014

My mac storage shows that I have 7.55 GB of movies on my computer, but I cannot find these movies anywhere.  When I search ".mov" on my computer, it shows that there are movies and it looks like they are in iPhoto.  When I open the iPhoto application, though, I do not see the movie files in there. So, I'm confused as to where exactly the files are and how to delete them off my computer to free up the 7.55 GB of space. How I can find and delete these files?

Intel Mac :: Computer's Hard Drive Space Keeps Changing?

Mar 19, 2012

My computer's hard drive space keeps changing. For exaomple, there are 50 GB free space, and then a few hrs later I will check the info again and it will read 47 GB free, 45 GB free, etc. It keeps changing throughout the day. I have not downloaded anything, not added any files, just browsed the web. Why does it keep chaning like that? Usually when I restart the computer, it reads what it normally should, eg. 50 GB free.

OS X Mavericks :: IPhoto Library Deleted From Computer - Not Enough Space For Time Machine Backup?

Aug 23, 2014

My entire iPhoto Library is gone, inaccessible, doesn't show up in finder. I tried to restore my last Time Machine back up but it says that I don't have enough space on my startup disk. In order to create space I deleted everything nonessential and moved all of my essential folders such as documents, photos, videos, everything, etc. to my external drive, then deleted them from my hard drive. I emptied the trash to make sure that everything was wiped.

I tried to do the Time Machine back up of my iPhoto Library again and is still says I don't have enough space. I looked at my storage under About this Mac, and it says that 120.35 GB of my current computer storage are photos, however, I don't have ANY photos on my hard drive at all. I don't know what to do because I can't delete applications and there is literally nothing else I can delete from my computer, so I don't understand how 135 GBs of storage is being used up.  

Could there be somewhere my photos are hiding? I just don't understand why my library got deleted in the first place for that matter.

MacBook Pro, OS X Mavericks (10.9)
