MacBook Pro :: Time Machine Backup Fails Due To Lack Of Space, Although Plenty Of Space Available On External Drive?

Mar 14, 2012

I've bought a 1 TB iomega ego mac edition II external fire wire drive. Once connected it asked whether i want to create a password and whether i want my data encrypted, to which i answered yes. Then a time machine backup started and failed after backing up 5.25 GB out of 39 GB of my data with the following error: "The backup disk ran out of space unexpectedly. Time Machine will try to make more space available by removing expired backups during the next scheduled backup". When i look at time machine it shows there is 994.29 GB available on iomega ego drive. The drive then went into: "Encrypting Backup Disk" message and it takes forever.

OS X :: Time Machine Backup Failed / Unable To Create Backup

May 3, 2009

I have a 1tb external for time machine back up and have about 750 gb of stuff to back up. I was under the impression that when time machine backs up my stuff it will automatically delete the oldest backup to create room for the newer backup.

My problem is that i did a back up a couple weeks ago and then today i go to back up and it tells me back up failed only 718gb available for 740gb of stuff to back up

anyone have this problem? how can i fix it?

OS X :: Time Machine Backup After HD Replacement / Redundent Backup Going Take Up Space

Jan 11, 2011

I just replaced the stock 160GB HD in my unibody macbook with a WD Blue Scorpio 640GB HD. I used Super Duper to clone the old drive to the new one, approximately 115 GB.

Now Time Machine wants to backup the full 115GB to my Time Capsule, which kinda sucks because it's going to be a redundent backup that's gonna take up over a 10th of my TC's space. Is there any way to avoid this and still use Time Machine?

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

I have 53GB available but need 69GB for backup. Is there something I can delete to free up space? It looks like almost all of the G-Drive space is used by backups. Is it safe to dump something and if so how?

MacBook Pro :: Creating Space On Backup Drive?

Sep 10, 2014

It appears that I have run out of space on my backup drive, 

I have an older MacBook Pro running OS10.7.5.  The computer itself is on its last legs and I'd like to create a "latest backup" to insure I have a solid copy of files and programs in case the machine dies before i have a chance to weed out useless programs and files and save music, etc. 

How do I create space on the back up drive, and which back ups can I safely remove, while still insuring I have the most recent backup of all programs/files/music/videos and so forth.

MacBook Pro :: Trying To Delete Data But It Didn't Free Up Space

Nov 30, 2014

I am trying to delete some data from my macbook pro. I am running out of storage and decided to purchase an external hard drive for my go pro videos. In total the videos are around 60-70gb of data. When i transferred them to my external hard drive i disconnected it and deleted the photos from iPhoto. The problem didn't free up any space. Now my storage just allocated that space to other things which it shouldn't have done?

The first photo is before i deleted the movies. The second is what happened after i did. It now says that 71 gb of data is being used for backups. I do have Time Machine on and i do a backup once a month onto an external hard drive.  Im currently running the newest version of yosemite.

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?

MacBook Pro :: How Much Space Does A Time Machine Backup Require

Jan 4, 2011

I have a 15" MBP with a 250GB HDD. I have about 150 gigs free, so obviously only 100 gigs are in use. So if I use my external HDD to backup to Time Machine, will I only need 100 gigs of it, or will Time Machine need the full 250GB for the backup?

OS X :: Create A New 80GB Partition In My Free Space?

Jul 18, 2009

I have been trying to expand my bootcamp partition and so far I have WinClone'd it, then I merged it into my Mac partition, then I tried to create a new windows partition (but it didn't work), so now I am trying to create a new Mac partition. It failed a few times saying things like not enough space (though there was), and something about available resources. Now it has been going for about an hour, and the progress bar is in the loading mode, where it doesn't show the progress. I'm pretty sure it is hung up, and will go like this forever. How long should it take?

BTW I have a 1st gen uMBP 15"

Intel Mac :: Create A Bootable Backup Of It?

Feb 29, 2012

I've just bought my iMac which came with no backup/bootable software discs at all (unlike new PC's). So from my over an hour reading from GOOGLE with conflicting answers from what I can gather "Time Capsule" cannot create a bootable copy of your hardrive ... So, I as have a 1TB harddrive with the iMAC some questions I have are :

1. ) Do I need to purchase a 2TB external hard drive (minimum) to create a clone of the current harddrive & any future information stored on it as I intend to backup once a month. It "MUST" be a bootable backup as I have no discs!

2.) Is there any "cloud" storage services that I can make a bootable backup on that which can be accessed later to download via another PC or MAC to a harddrive/memory stick etc. & then uploaded to the new replacement hardrive in my iMAC?

3.) Off the subject altogether but just thought of it! I hate the keyboard with the iMAC even though its stylish it isn't lit which isn't helping me at night! So when using my old keyboard (which does light up) can I tell the iMAC to use the sign in the normal place rather than the number 2 key as well as other keys which are in different places on the iMAC compared to a PC keyboard !!!

OS X :: Delete Something From External HDD Don't Get The Space Back

Apr 4, 2010

I have had my Simple Drive 500GB External Hard Drive for some time now but I have noticed recently that whenever I delete a file from it the hard drive doesn't give the space back.

For Example: I Have 143.95GB on the External Hard Drive free but when I delete a 20gig file it doesn't give the space back on the External Hard Drive, it stays at 143.95GB. Also, this happens with many of my flash drives etc.

OS X :: Time Machine Backup Need More Space Than Available

Sep 6, 2010

My MBP has a 500GB HDD and I have about 70GB free. My backup drive is also a 500GB HDD and has been erased. I chose the drive for my Time Machine backup but it fails and Time Machine says it needs 507GB when the estimated was only 429GB. Why does it need the additional 80GB?

OS X :: Unable To Complete Backup / There Isn't Enough Space

Apr 1, 2009

I have been the proud owner of a Macbook Pro 2.5Ghz with 4GB RAM, running Leopard 10.5.6 for just under a year and I have never been able to get Time Machine to backup my files properly. Instead I have been backing up my really important files manually to an external NAS drive.

However, I would like to back up all files to an external USB drive using Time Machine. I have a Freecom USB2 drive which I purposely bought, but when I try to perform the initial back up I get a message telling me there isn't enough space.

My MacBook has a 250Gb HDD and my USB drive is 500Gb (465Gb available), so I have no idea why I am getting this message. I have ensured that no other devices are connected in case it was also trying to back up those (USB & NAS drive), but still get the same message. It says I need 698Gb of space to perform the full backup - where is it getting this from?!

Within the options it shows me a panel containing an entry 'Time Machine Backups' with a size of 154.4Mb, which I'm guessing is the directory that I am trying to save the backups to.

I'm probably doing something obviously stupid but would appreciate it if somebody could point it out for me.
