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 :: 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?

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?

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.

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".

Intel Mac :: Increase Free Space On Startup Disc?

Jun 5, 2012

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! Now, I want to erase lots of files from the startup disc or do whatever I need to do in order that I might have way more available memory on the startup disc. I need to know that my backups of iPhoto are truly on the external drive, and then I need to do something so that the memory available on my desktop is maximized.

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.

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.

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

OS X :: Error Messages With External Drives While Disc Cleanup/how Do I Make That Space Available?

Feb 12, 2009

so i have been using pc all my life, but now i have a new macbook and ive been downloading a lot of things. the other day an error popped up and said i was running low on disk space... ive been lazy about "reconfiguring my external hard drive for my mac" like the apple employee told me i needed to do, but i decided i should finally do it to free up space on my computer.

i have a seagate external hard drive and i plugged it into my computer and erased everything on it so i could start using it with time machine. after it started backing everything up an error popped up saying that i only have 2.2 MB available.... so on my system preferences i reconfirmed that it says 2.2 MB of 232.9 GB available. this doesnt make any sense because i just wiped my external drive, plus i didnt have much on it to begin with.

so i guess my question is, how do i make that space available?

also, i mainly wanted to back up all of my documents, music, and movies so that i could delete some movies and documents from my computer that i dont need every day and make space for more, but then when i plug my ext hard drive back in to my computer, wont it just mirror my computer with time machine and defeat the purpose of storing things on it because they will just be deleted?

i know im lame, but im really trying to get used to my mac which i know is way easier than im making it out to be.

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?
