Aug 19, 2010

I'm an application developer thinking of writing a small utility to help you clean up your disk when it gets full. The idea is to present the largest files and folders in your home directory along with the last time they were opened.

OS X :: Freeing HD Space / ITunes Media Location

Oct 31, 2010

I have a macbook pro with a 150g HD and only 30g remaining. I'd like to know how you find where all this mass is located? From my own findings it would seem that I have at least 43g of iTunes content found C Stride - Music - iTunes I don't fully understand why i have this and indeed if i can delete it as I thought i had all my iTunes content on an external so not to tie up my lap top HD (500g with 230g of iTunes content). But, when I look in preferences on iTunes the media location folder is no longer displaying anything?? It used to.
1. Can I get rid of the 43g of content on my HD?
2. Why is no media location displaying in iTunes?
3. How else can I see what is using 120g on my HD?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Freeing Up Hard Drive Space

Jun 30, 2012

I am giving my son my old macbook air, and wanted to free up as much hard drive space as possible.  I deleted my user account, and I expected there to be about 225 GB of free space.  There is not, however.  When I check the storage, it says there is nearly 78 GB of "Backups."  My question is whether that backup is from my old account, and ultimately, where can I find this to delete it to free up the space. 

I also have another macbook air that I plan to sell.  What is the best way to erase the contents of the computer without deleting the OS. I plan to sell it, and obviously don't want the next purchaser to have access to my old data.

MacBook Air, Mac OS X (10.7.2), 2 11.6

Applications :: Freeing Up Space By Deleting Music From Time Machine?

Apr 24, 2009

I just got an external hard drive because I have thousands of songs that my macbook cannot hold.

I am using Time Machine to put everything on my external but I was wondering....if I delete the music on my computer so that I just have it on my external - will Time machine delete it off my external when it automatically updates since it is no longer on my computer?

I want to download more music but am scared of losing any old music.

MacBook Air :: Free Up Space On Startup Disk?

Apr 19, 2012

I'm getting a message my startup disk is full. My macbook air is not even a year old and when I check my storage status, my media, applications and files make up for less than a tenth of my content. However, I have nearly 110GB of "Other" type stuff that is occupying my disk. I have had no luck searching for the source of these "other" files in my Finder and all the Youtube videos and internet question responses have not helped me.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Missing Disk Space And No Usb Startup

May 16, 2012

I have a white macBook (10.7.3, 250g HD) which has begun to behave in an odd way and which I have so far failed to resolve. 

First I got a message saying very little disk space left - only 420MB which is strange because I knew the HD to be far from full. The beach ball gave me very little access to the Finder but I was eventually able to empty safari cache which gave me 6Gb.  

Checking the root disk folder sizes showed that only 130gb was listed in the various folders but the status bar showed that only 6gb out of 250gb was available. I tried to start up from an external USB disk (no Firewire on this machine, sadly) but the laptop refused to starup from it - tried cable in both USB ports, disk is GUID formatted. I shut down the computer - had to force shutdown with power key as unresponsive to Finder command. 

On restarting I got a message about forced shutdown etc but status bar now says 40gb available (when there should be over 100gb). I was able to select external USB drive in Startup preferences but machine will not startup ffrom external drive. 

Disk Utility reports no problems with internal drive. I want to use Disk Warrior but cannot find cd, hence attempt to startup from external drive. Cannot even check disk while running DW from internal disk as it says prefs file corrupted or write protected. Trashing it (as suggested) makes no difference as new prefs file still unusable. 

I have a TM backup but don't really want to use it if it is likely to have the same corruption.Also, why is the USB disk not starting up the Machine? Only thing I can think of is to do an archive/install of Lion, but is the bloating in the system or are ther some hidden files somewhere which won't be changed?

MacBook Air :: Startup Disk Is Full / Clearing Up Some Space

Aug 26, 2014

It says 12.6 GB of movies; I don't know where these movies are. I don't have any downloaded. How can I find them to delete them? I have also deleted all of my photos except three and it still says 11.44 GB. That docen't seem right either. 

When I search my computer, files in Dropbox come up. But I thought those weren't included in my computer?  (There are no movies on there, either.) I can't even download an update.

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 :: Time Machine Eating Disk Space / Eat GB's Of Hard Disk Space While Preparing Backup

Dec 11, 2009

whenever I run Time Machine on my PowerBook G4 (1.5 Ghz / 1Gb RAM / OSX 10.5.8) it will eat up GB's of hard disk space while 'preparing the backup'. After that it finishes the backup, but I don't get the space back. I'm talking about the internal HD, not the external target disk of course. Does Time Machine use the space to generate some temporary files? Any ideas how I can get my disk space back

Applications :: No Disk Space After Failed Disk Utility Erase Free Space?

Dec 15, 2010

I'm having a pretty serious problem. I attempted to erase the free space on my HD, as I do from time to time, except this time it appeared to hang/freeze at the end, when it gets to the part where it creates a temporary file. I waited for several minutes and it didn't move. I tried clicking the skip button, but that did nothing either, so I force quit Disk Utility.

The problem is, it left the disk at "Zero KB" of free space, effectively making my computer inoperable. I was in the process of studying for a huge exam tomorrow, and am currently flipping out.

If it matters, I'm on a Macbook Pro 2.33 GHz Core 2 Duo, running 10.4.

I really don't want to have to reinstall the OS and import the old files, but my real fear is that I will have to do a fresh install of the OS.
