OS X :: Large Unknown Files In Macbook Library - How To Delete All These Files

Nov 2, 2010

I recently discovered, after running Disk Inventory X, some really fat files in my Library. I haven't touched them, as I read on another forum that it could be dangerous but is there anything I can do to get rid of them? I thought maybe they were left there after a recent Time Machine backup because I read that happening to someone else in another forum...

I've attached screenshots (I think) of the two biggest files.

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.

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 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.

My Macbook crashed so I tried everything to restart it.  what finally worked is opening it from the install disk.  I performed a "repair disk", and after saying "invalid node structure" and "invalid record count", it says it cannot repair the disk.  I don't know what step to take next.  How do I see if time machine has backed my files up?  Do I need to erase the HD and reinstall?

ITunes :: Delete All The Artwork And Start Over Again?

Feb 25, 2012

Is there a way to delete all the artwork from iTunes and start over again? I keep getting the wrong album artwork for many of my songs. Even if I delete it individually, it comes back. I was thinking, if I delete it all, turn off iCloud and syncing, download all new artwork, then reload iCloud, I might finally be able to have the correct artwork. 

It seems one piece of artwork shows up on almost half my songs. It's really annoying. With 1000's of songs, it would take forever to do each individually (and even if I did, I think that one piece of artwork would show up when I synced with iCloud.

MacBook Pro :: Delete Files That Say You Can't Erase Them?

May 14, 2012

I'm trying to delete several files (one, an application; the other, an Excel file) but whenever I move them to the trash, I get an error message. The Application (Skype) error says I have to unlock the file, but after I unlock it (using File->Get Info) and I type in the administrator password, it gets me back to the beginning and I have to do the whole thing over and over again.

When I try to delete Excel file, i get a dialogue box that says "The operation can't be completed because the item NY alumni list.xls is in use." But the file is only being used by me; even after I make a small change and resave it and then try to delete it, i get the same error message repeatedly.
