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?

20 gigs of my HDD is missing. I had a 20 gig torrent, but I deleted that (it wasn't fully downloaded), and the only other thing I have downloaded was (accidently) the 1.1 gig Garageband extra sounds etc and the Safari 4 update. Any ideas?

I clicked on my HD and I have 124.5 Used and 61.51 Free, which adds up to 186.01. I then clicked on Macintosh HD and selected all the files and hit "Get Info." It all adds up to 117.5 GB. I'm missing about 7 GB and I don't know where it is. Are there some hidden files or something?

OS X :: Can't Get Back Hidden Folder

Mar 30, 2010

Yesterday, I reinstalled leopard, as I was having errors, and random problems. I backed everything up fine, however I forgot an important /.hidden file I had with some bank data. The machine was on a time machine backup.

Any chance to get it back some how? Would time machine back, it up? Any program that may allow me to get it back if it is still on the drive? I just did a standard quick erase before installing osx again.

App Store :: Get A Hidden Purchased App Back?

May 30, 2012

I accidentally hit the "x" on the "Purcased apps" page of the Mac App Store. I know that if you go to Store -> View My Account and click "View Hidden Purchases" it should show me the purchases that I have hidden, and allow me to "UnHide" them. However when I click on the "View Hidden Purchases" link it leads me to a page that says "You do not have any hidden purchases." I know I do, because it even says "You have hidden 12 items" to the left of the "View Hidden Purchases" link. 

I know that this seems kinda confusing, it's even confusing to myself but my mind is boggled. I don't understand why it would be saying that I have 12 hidden items, then I click the link to view them and it says I have none. I've tried logging out of and into the app store and restarting my computer.

App Store :: How To Bring Back Hidden Apps

Apr 27, 2012

Apps that have been closed with the X checkbox. Are they gone forever? I thought they were just hidden and could be brought back. I can't seem to find a way to do that. The problem started because the App Store says I have an app installed when it's not in my Applications folder. Where is it looking to see if an app is installed? There are no receipts I could find. 

is there any sensible way to order App Store purchases aside from purchase date, which seems the least useful.

MacBook Pro :: MBP Corrosion / Covered For A Replacement?

Mar 21, 2010

I bought my MBP around a year ago (beginning of April), and after nearly a year of usage, it seems to have grown really strange black markings along the front edge of the laptop. It's way ingrained into the aluminum which means it has to be a sign of corrosion, something I find to be extremely unusual, given the build quality of this beaute (this is my first mac).

I'm not entirely outraged (it's not a shattered screen), but it does get annoying and it is a sign of cosmetic damage that definitely isn't a part of the normal 'wear and tear'.

Would my machine be eligible for a replacement? Mine's the base 2.4/2/250gb model, and I was wondering what they would replace it with.

OS X :: Disc Inserted Does Not Have Enough Free Space?

Aug 19, 2010

I am having difficulty burning a dmg file to a blank disc. I have a macbook pro with OS X 10.5.8. I am using disk utility to attempt this feat but it is being difficult. The blank disc is a 702 MB and the image is ~540 MB. When I attempt to burn the image onto the blank disc, it says the disc inserted does not have enough free space. 1) The disc is blank. 2) The image is less than the capacity of the disc. I tried another blank disc and it still reports the same issue. The blank discs work just fine in Windows and it reports it as such. Why is Mac OS reporting there is no free space when, in fact, there is?

Software :: Disc Space Is Gone And Can't Shut Down

Mar 25, 2009

I have an Ibook G4, and it has great to me until i downloaded a few movies this week. My mistake. So the two major problems I now have is, that its telling me I am out of space on my disc, and the computer does not shut down properly, making me have to force quit everything and hold the power button in until it shuts off. I have checked disk utility, and verified disk option, and it says there is a volume problem and and exiting problem. I ran a free virus scan on my hard drive, but it says there are no viruses and no corrupted files. I dont know what to do anymore.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Missing Hard Disc Space

May 19, 2012

Over the past few days, I've been pruning my hard drive of excess files and moving many of them to external hard drives. My machine is a year-old Macbook Pro. Even after removing over 100GB of files from my 750GB internal hard drive, the info pane for my hard disc still tells me I have only about 60GB of free space.I have been using Disc Inventory X to find files and get rid of them. My latest scan of my HD with this program yields 450GB of actual files stored on my computer, yet the info pane for my HD (powered by Finder) is still telling me I have about 76 GB free. Does anyone have any ideas for how this discrepancy could exist? If the actual files on my computer only come to 450GB, how can I free up the remaining 250GB of space that seem to be missing?

iMac, Mac OS X (10.7.2)

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.

Intel Mac :: Screen Covered With Vertical Straight Lines?

May 17, 2012

It started a week ago while playing Civilization V on my iMac : the screen suddenly displayed vertical blue (altered with dark blue) vertical straight lines, the sound was still working, i could hear the music from the game. Then the screen turned black and i couldn't hear anything anymore, i had to restart the computer with the apple button.  The same happened again with civilization, once with green lines. And today, while restarting after this bug, the screen displayed multicolor lines instead of the grey wallpaper with the apple.

OS X :: Running Out Of Space On Startup Disc - Recovered On Reboot?

May 28, 2009

On my Macbook Pro (Tiger) I suddenly got an error message about running out of space on the start up disc (woking on a word 2008 document). Checking suggested I had only 124MB left.

A couple of days earlier I had 60gb free. Deleting a few gb of programs reduced the space to zero!

I couldn't work out were the space was being used but as most programs were now refusing to work. I just shut down.

On switching back on, the HD space had come back and I had my 60gb of free space back.

whether its a sign of a problem I should try and sort out, or is it just "one of those things".

I've backed up all the contents of my computer to a 1TB external hard drive connected by USB (LaCie Porsche). Time Machine is working perfectly with it!

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.
