Your startup disk is almost full. You need to make more space available on your startup disk by deleting files.†How can I delete duplicate files??? Don't want to delete files by files... folders by folders...
Recently my computer has been constantly showing these pop up information boxes with, "your hard disk does not have enough space" and suggests removing files from your startup disk. What is a start up disk? How can I make room? What is taking up so much space? I don't really download anything major?
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?
I have an old MacBook, model 1, 1. It is running OSX 10.5.8. I am getting messages telling me my start up disc is almost full and I have to delete files. I am not sure what this means, or what I can do to avoid deleting files. Is deleting old mesages in Mail be enough? Do I have to delete applications? Maybe I need to bite the bullet and buy a new computer?
This might be a "silly" question but here it is: I get this message: your startup disk is full. Do I need to delete files? What there is to do ? Where to look? Is it normal, my Macbook is getting really hot?
I have a smaller SSD drive in my Mac Pro. I have other disks, but I like the small SSD as my main drive. I have a program (Daylite) that needs to backup its database every day. The program refuses to save these backups anywhere except the main drive. Therefore, my SSD fills up quickly and when I forget the delete old backups, my drive gets full and the system stops.
I need to be able to automatically delete older files from that folder when my drive is getting full. For instance, I could have any files older than 3 days be deleted from that folder whenever the disk is low.
I'm running Mac OS X Version 10.7.4 on my iMac and am suddenly unable to simply move files to the trash.Instead, I get the following message: 'Finder wants to make changes. Type your password to allow this.'When I do enter my password, the file does not enter the Trash but seems to disappear.I tried to find ways to revert to previous settings that allowed me to move files to the trash, but had trouble doing so.How can I get my iMac to run normally?†
I make an error... I didnot delete files when I need to. Now, with a full start up disc, I cannot access my files. When I goto log on, I get my mail, and can acess recent items, but cannot delete files. How do I fix this? I have no dock, no icon, .....¬†
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.
My Harddisk space on Mac book pro has run out. When I checked the system info, I can see 80GB are "other", for which I have no idea what they are. Can anyone tell me how to find them & delete to free up more space?
It says 12.6 GB of movies; I don't know where these movies are. I don't have any downloaded. How can I find them to delete them?¬†I have also deleted all of my photos except three and it still says 11.44 GB. That docen't seem right either.¬†
When I search my computer, files in Dropbox come up. But I thought those weren't included in my computer?¬† (There are no movies on there, either.) I can't even download an update.
My MB Air is not booting (I get the ever gray Apple logo screen with the spinning wheel, and nothing happens)¬†Following instructions I found online, I tried the disk utility repair disk and permissions and, apparently, there's nothing wrong.¬† Still, the system won't boot!¬†
I'm now trying to reinstall Mac OS X Lion, but the system requires about 0.5 GB of additional free disk space to install!¬†
Is there anyway I can access the OS terminal screen (command line interface), so I may delete a few files, creating additional disk space?¬†
Info: MacBook Air, Mac OS X (10.7.3), OS reinstall
I have the Unibody 17" MacBook Pro with 4GB Ram and a 500GB 7200RPM Seagate Hard Drive. Although the computer is fast, it is not as fast as the Aluminum iMac I used to have. I have zeroed the hard drive and installed everything from scratch but I still get the beach ball from time to time. It does not freeze but it is not as snappy as I would like.What could I do to make my computer faster?
Programs I have installed: Adium, Adobe CS4 Master Collection, Aperture, Audacity, Cyberduck, Final Cut Pro 2, Firefox, Google Earth, Handbrake, iLife '09, iWork '09, Microsoft Office 2008, Parallels, Periscope, Rosetta Stone, Sling Player, Toast Titanium 10 and VLC.
Happy new owner of an 11 inch Air and wondering what I can delete to increase memory space? I remember on my MBP I deleted some languages and other stuff but I also recall it screwed the MBP up and needed a full software restore
