OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Startup Disk Almost Full (when It's Not)

Jun 27, 2012

I see a lot of people suggesting that perhaps because the poster had less than 10gb (which is my case as well-- I have around 8), that this is why this message is happening.  Well, my response to that is:

1)I have had around 8gb free for months, and these messages only started appearing in the last week. Each time I go "???" and look at my finder to see 8.4gb free or whatever, and I am like "WHY ARE YOU TELLING ME I AM OUT OF SPACE?

2)in the terminal, I was trying to download a few 20-30mb files, and wget quit out on me saying "insufficient storage space left on device".and doing "df -h" shows me that I have almost 10% free.. and again this is a 20-30mb, so this is total nonsense.

Are there any suggestions as to what might be causing this and a course of action, other than being told: "copy your files to an external hard drive and delete them on your startup disk".

OS X V10.5 Leopard :: High Virtual Memory Usage - Low Startup Disk Space Warning

May 27, 2012

My wife has an Intel Core 2 Duo Macbook with Leopard 10.5.8. We've run the software update. We've run repair disk permissions. We've restarted the computer. But despite all of that, her virtual memory usage is really high compared to my computer. Each process is using from approximately 600 - 1100 MB of virtual memory. She has 12 GB of free space on her hard drive, but her computer has been running slower lately and has had the low startup disk space warning.

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?
