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.

IMac :: HDD Space Slowly Decreasing - How To Get It Back

Feb 16, 2010

I installed iStat 2 days ago and just yesterday I noticed that my HD space slowly decreases; not by a lot. For example, yesterday it said that I had used only 12.06 GB of space. A little later it said 12.07 GB and then 12.08 or 12.09 (I don't remember which one). Today it started in the low 13's and then it went to 13.07 and then 13.09. Currently, it's at 13.17 GB used.

MacBook :: Hard Drive Space Decreasing To 0 KB?

Oct 24, 2010

Running Snow Leopard on a Late 2007 MacBook, and I booted it up today to see that I had 15 GB left (normal). 4 hours later, I get an alert that I'm running low on Hard Disk space, so I open a new Finder window to see how much space I have. It tells me 10 MB. After 5 minutes, this dropped down to 0 KB, and all of my applications opened "paused", and I had to force quit them. I don't have 0 KB left, I have 15 GB, but Finder isn't telling me that.

MacBook Pro :: Hard Drive Space Decreasing Slightly

Oct 2, 2010

I'm the owner of a Macbook Pro with 4 gig RAM and a 320gb harddrive. However, I have noticed that the hard drive space is decreasing slightly for seemingly no reason. Case in point, today it went from 197.66gb to 197.50 whilst I was watching TV and just before it went down further for no reason whatsoever.

Although its not a big deal it does arouse my curiosity and annoy me. Is it just virtual memory that will eventually come back or something more sinister? If it continues for a long time the space lost will eventually add up. Since I'm planning on soon buying an iMac these are the sorts of things I need to know.

MacBook :: Deleting Files Does Not Clear Disc Space

Dec 10, 2014

Early 2011 Mac book pro running 10.9.4. Deleting iPhoto files does not create additional space.  iPhoto is about 160gb, iTunes which I use for viewing slideshows remotely is about 135gb.

Software :: Decreasing Space Between Menu Items

Dec 21, 2009

I am wondering if there is a way to decrease the space between menu items (the things on the right side of the menu bar). There is so much wasted space between them, especially the battery percentage and the time.

Also, if anyone knows of a way to kill some of the unnecessary 3rd party menu items that don't have an option in their preferences to not display the menu item.

MacBook :: Fixing No Disc Space/removing Duplicate Files?

Nov 11, 2009

So I have just received my Mackbook back from an Apple store as I tried to install windows via Boot camp assistant. Turns out all my files are still intact however now, all my files have a copy of themselves. For example if I look into my music folder, take the band Radiohead for instance, all of there songs have a copy i.e. 01- Everything in its right place - 01.flac and in the same folder aslso contains 01 - Evrything in its right place.

As you can imagine having everything duplicated has taxed my disk space to the point where I have less than 2GB left and can't update the software for apple.

My question is what would be the easiest way to deal with this and delete the additional copies of everything? I was hoping they would be a better way than going through everything

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 :: Hard Drive Slowly Losing Space

Oct 27, 2009

I'm running an intel Imac 2.16ghz c2d with 3 gigs memory and 250 gig hard drive. Here's how it started. I was surfing on the Flock browser one day, and then all of a sudden, my hard drive space was full! I wasn't downloading anything. I checked my log folder in the library and lo and behold, there was almost 2 gigs stored in the console folder! What? Anyway, I cleaned it out and my Mac is now under routine maintenance via OnyX. I also use virus barrier x5 and nothing is wrong with my Mac. I also run disk inventory x and run activity monitor. Now, I got my hard drive space back at 200.37 gigs. But sometimes when I reboot, my hard drive shows it at 200.48, then as time goes by while I surf, it slowly decreases to 200.27 gigs, then it will slowly go back up to 200.37 gigs, and so forth. I'm not downloading anything, just surfing. Has this happened to you guys before? Is the virtual memory causing this? Are there any cure for this besides formatting the hd again? What's going on?

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?

MacBook :: Rapidshare Keeps Downloading Windows Files / Files Having Parallels Symbol?

Jan 31, 2010

On Rapidshare, I've download a lot of files such as .rar files on my mac and everything has worked fine. Up until today, I downloaded a few and they are windows files because they have the parallels symbol (Yes I have parallels) but my parallels isn't running. So i went back and tried to download old files that I had previously been opened with Mac OSX and they too are opening as parallel files. I dont understand why all the files want me to download the windows version. The only thing that I changed was i finally upgraded my MacPar Deluxe because there was a new version but that's the only thing. So can someone please help me fix this problem. I dont want to download windows files while on my mac.

MacBook Pro :: Recover Lost Disc Space

Jun 20, 2014

I have a MacBook Pro 10.6.8. I work with a lot of large files. When I'm done, I transfer these large files to an external hard drive, erase them from my lap top, and at least once a day, restart my computer, allowing for the formerly used disc space to be recovered. I occasionally will run ONYX and restart the computer, this also recovers lost disc space. Usually after restarting my computer there is between 100-150 GB of available space. My problem now is the space is not coming back. I'm down to 45 GB. Trash is empty. I've cleaned with ONYX, but the space is not recovering.

MacBook Air :: Does DropBox Content Use Space On Start Up Disc?

Jun 2, 2014

I´m trying to discover (with AppleCare support) why my new Air has virtually NO space left on the Start Up Disc...EVER. The OTHER files have always been huge and we´ve trashed everything imaginable. The AppleCare rep suggests that I consider wiping my hard drive clean and starting over. I've done that with my Pro and other computers and will not go there unless absolutely necessary. Today my OTHER appeared for a few hours to be the ONLY kind of files on my SU Disk and indicated I had only 4 MB of space left! Right now, it´s reading that I have all categories of files represented again, but OTHER is still over 41 GB big. Days ago, I took off ALL my docs, movies, photos and am still in constant red alert. That´s why I wonder about DropBox. Some out there on the net say it DOES take up space and others say NO.

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 :: Maximum Battery Capacity Decreasing

Jul 23, 2010

It's only been a month&half with my MBP 13". Coconut battery claims my MBP is 3 months old now (obviously manufactured 2 months prior to my purchase). Currently I have 8 cycles. 2 calibrations (one on first day, and one yesterday). It went from 98%-97%. Obviously this isn't a big jump, and I know i'm just being paranoid. I don't understand how people on the forum says after calibration your maximum battery capacity should go up, and it refreshes the system or something. It nearly dropped by a 100... What the hell? How do I make it go up? It's only a month old !! Shouldn't it be at 100% or atleast 99%? Some people on this forum claim that they have over 100%+ after MONTHS of usage...

IMac :: Stop Downloading Files/copying To Clipboard And Saving Files To Desktop?

Nov 29, 2009

Why does my mac stop downloading files, copying to clipboard, saving files to desktop, etc?

iMac g5 1.9 ghz 17" running 10.5.8. Had a hard drive crash and bought a new one. Loaded new OS leapord. Everything works fine at first, but after the computer has been on for a while, it will stop downlading files, disk verify doesn't work. I can't copy and paste stuff. It seems as if the hard drive is full, but I have only used 32GB of 300GB.

When I restart, it works again, then slowly not. Is it an overheating issue? How do I know if my fan is running? Is it a bad hard drive I put in it? Bought it new with three year waranty.
