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 :: Deleted Files Not Give Space Back On External HD

Mar 19, 2010

I have a 500GB external Seagate HD that I have in two partitions, one for Time Machine and one for random media stuff. I was cleaning it out today and realized that when I delete things, it doesn't give me the space back on the hard drive. I've experienced this same problem with a USB drive that I use to transfer files from one computer to another, and it doesn't work unless I use disk utility to "Erase" the drive, then add what I need. I can't afford to erase the drive (not enough room to put it all on the MBP) and am starting to need my space back from the deleted files, how can I do this without ruining the files already on my partition?

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.

MacBook :: How To Get Back Free Space On HD

Jan 2, 2010

I would like to gain back some space on my Macbook's HD. I would like to:

1) Burn all the photos and videos on DVD's. Re this, once burned, I'll delete them from the HD, via iPhoto.(show files, etc.) What would happen with the events? Say that, in the future, I want to import 20% of the photos with their corresponding events (already deleted from iPhoto): is this feasible?

2) Is there an app within Leopard OS (not Snow Leopard) that would allow me to change photo and video size, all at once or not. (batch processing?) Videos and photos where imported within iPhoto app.

Intel Mac :: Timeline Won't Back Up (not Enough Space)?

Apr 14, 2012

Timeline won't back up because it says there is not enough space on my external drive.  This never happened before.I have 10.6.8.  I just restored my new hard drive from Timeline.  It was an easy restoration.  The first time I backed up on Timeline, it said there was not enough space.  I do have my external drive partitioned.  I thought old backups were deleted when the space was needed.

OS X :: Getting Back Hidden Covered Disc Space On Hdd

Jul 11, 2009

Why is there such a memory loss on hard drives? By this I mean, if you have a 160 gig HHD - you are only presented with 149 gig.

Or my 250 gig only shows 232 gig - so where has the 18 gig disappeared to?

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 Air :: Time Machine Back Up Not Enough Space?

May 6, 2012

I just tried to back up my Mac Book Air and I use OS X 10.7.3.   

I got a message which said that there was not enough space on my external hard drive.   The message said that I needed 50 GB and the external drive only has 43 of space... Note, when I check out the hard drive, it says:  ""Available 43.63 of 249.93". 

The sole purpose of my hard drive is for back up purposes.  So,  there isn't anything other data or information on the drive..

Applications :: Automatically Delete Certain Files When Space Is Low?

Dec 2, 2010

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.

OS X Mavericks :: How To Delete Free Space Partition

Jun 24, 2014

I partitioned my MacBook Pro into 2 volumes so I could dual boot Mavericks and Yosemite Developer Preview. After testing Yosemite, I found out that it was stable enough to run on my main partition. I installed it on my main partition replacing Mavericks and deleted the second partition which included Yosemite. While deleting, somehow I was left with an empty partition called "Free Space" which I cannot delete.   

I am pretty sure the problem isn't related to Yosemite being a developer preview as it could've happened under an previous stable OS. How can I merge my "Free Space" partition with Macintosh HD?

OS X :: Not Enough Space To Copy Music From IPod Back To Laptop

Aug 26, 2010

Irecently had my laptop (holding my itunes library) stolen. Grrr. So I have since purchased some software called Senuti which enables me to replicate my ipod back onto my Mac laptop. The problem I have though, is I have over 8,000 songs on my ipod and my laptop doesn't seem to have nearly enough memory for me to copy back. I have deleted everything possible from the Mac to free up space, but there is not enough.

Is there a way I can get my music back from my ipod, and be able to run ITunes effectively again and keep updating my library with new music and pictures? I have an external hard drive, but I'm unsure how I could either use the hard-drive to facilitate the transfer, or do I need to copy what content I have managed to copy to itunes, to the hard drive, then delete from the laptop and copy the next batch?
