OS X :: Startup Disk Full - Large Memory Available?

Jul 13, 2009

I was using my Macbook awhile ago and I got a popup message saying my startup disk is full, even though I have 84.05 gigs available. I figured it was a fluke and ignored it. A bit later, I was doing some stuff in Finder and noticed at the bottom where it says my drive's free space, it suddenly went from 84.05 GB free, to zero free, gave me the error message, and went back up to 84.05 gigs free, and it's done this a couple times...and the only thing I was doing was copying a 3 KB text file from a thumb drive. Anyone know WTF is up with that? It definitely is strange and I've never seen it before. I just ran a Verify in Disk Utility and everything checks out, no errors

OS X :: Your Startup Disk Is Almost Full - Memory Available

Jan 4, 2010

I've suddenly been getting a pop up message that reads "Your startup disk is almost full - you need to make more space available on your start up disk by deleting files"

My hard disk is 320 GB & I've only used 111 GB so far so why is this message popping up & what can I do about it without deleting my precious files?

OS X :: Disk Memory Full But Can't Move Anything To Trash?

Mar 16, 2009

My 50GB memory is unexpectedly showing full on my Macbook Pro but when I go to move anything to Trash it's not registering it at all i.e. when I open Trash it is empty and when I press empty, nothing is happening. I have just spent an hour trying to cull my Itunes folder only to find that it isn't registering any changes because the disk is full. Also Spotlight has disappeared from top corner of the screen. Is this all related?

OS X :: Startup Disk Full - Slowing Down Mac

May 5, 2010

I'm a fairly naive mac user and got my friend to instal my new harddrive.

It's big, with 320GB.

However, he set up a startupdisk partition, with a size of 20GB, called OSX.

For some reason this is now full and slowing down my MAC which is particularly annoying as I have college essays to submit very soon!

I've checked what is on my startupdisk and it is as follows:

Private 8GB
Applications 5GB
Library 3.5GB
System 2.3GB

I don't understand what this means but I have copied applications, library and system to my HD and tried to delete off startupdisk but it won't let me. say it is require by mac.

MacBook Pro :: Startup Disk Is Almost Full

Sep 12, 2014

Something is going bad with my computer. Recently I have been getting the startup disk is almost full, but it is not. I have over a gig left and have tossed a bunch of stuff. I feel it was an email or something that was downloaded that is causing it to eat up all the memory. I have also done the Disk Utility and fixed it a couple times in a row. what is happening or what I can do to put my finger on it?

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.

OS X :: Startup Disk Full After ITunes Updates

Dec 31, 2010

I have a problem with my macbook (OS X Snow Leopard) that just occurred today:

I ran a few itunes updates (amongst others a 1.6 GB navi software) and my startup disk turned out to be almost full. I tried to solve the problem by shifting movies and music to an external hard drive but suddenly my mac froze and I had to restart.

Since this moment, when logging in a am informed that I need to free disk space (Start up disk is full) but this is not possible because my dock is missing and all I get is a blank desktop (no clock, WLAN, Battery symbols in the upper right corner). All I can do is access safari and Qucktime over the recent items list and open preferences (They can still play movies and surf the web). The apple Logo in the upper left corner is still there, allowing access to the basic commands like shut down, log out, etc.

I tried rebooting with the OSX disc to access disk utility, ran disk restore and disk verify. Everything seems to be allright, I just can't erase data and free up space. The terminal commands don't work either, all I'm being given is this command line: -bash-3.2#. Any command I enter is "unknown".

Intel Mac :: Startup Disk Is Showing Full?

Mar 10, 2012

I ran omnidisk sweeper and it shows I only have 39GB of used space.  However, when I check the info on the startup disk it shows that I only have 300mb-5GB left depending on the day.  I have deleted all unnecessary files that I can.  I can't really find anything else to delete.  I only have a couple programs installed that are pretty basic like word and excel.
