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.

Info:
MacBook Air, Mac OS X (10.7.3)

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.

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.

OS X :: Cleaning Up Your Mac To Free Up Disk Space?

Sep 27, 2010

Anyone know if it's possible to clean up downloaded updates from programs on Snow Leopard?

When Adobe downloads updates for Photoshop or Acrobat for instance...after the update get's installed does the file get deleted or it stays somewhere on the system.

Same goes for Mac OSX updates...do they leave a copy of say an Itunes update on the system after it updates it...or does it get automatically deleted from the system.

I'd like to clean out any useless downloads that just sit there taking up space after they have updated the Apps on my Mac.

So does anyone know where to find these downloaded updates and if it's possible to remove them without any issues?

MacBook Air :: Free Up Disk Space?

Mar 27, 2012

I clicked Disk Utility, then Macintosh HD and moved the mouse a bit leftside; at that point, I discovered that I can't click "Erase free space", but it shows "Erase free space not available on this type of disk drive". I don't know why it happened. Also, my disk storage is full though I never installed many memory-consuming  applications and media files. It just shows "others" that dorminates the whole memory storage.

MacBook Pro :: OS X 10.6.8 - No Free Disk Space

Jun 21, 2014

Version: 10.6.8
Capacity: 11.5 GB
Model: Macbook Pro 13" from June 2009 

I recently have been having issues with my computer and had to get a new hard drive. I installed it myself after purchasing from crucial.com. The order says I got a 500GB Momentus (I know it is not an SSD). I had to get my computer completely wiped of its memory when they were going through the initial problems at the Genius Bar. This means I should have a ton of free space to my knowledge.

When I look at my Macintosh HD info it says that I have 0 KB of available space. When I try to download anything (like Adobe Flash Player) it says that I have no available free disk space. I believe I should have a lot of free space. I am thinking I may have done something wrong while installing the hard drive, but I followed a tutorial and it seemed simple.

MacBook Pro :: How To Free Up Disk Space

Dec 2, 2014

how to free up disk space.  I have a 250GB MacBook Pro-2013.  I have a 2TB Time Machine back-up hard drive.  Photos take up 50GB, videos 60GB, music 30GB.  My Time Machine backs up my computer each time it is plugged into an adapter and on my home network. Should I move all my photos and videos  of family to the cloud?  Do I need another external hard drive to store photos, videos and music on?  I have emptied trash, deleted unused apps, deleted old documents and deleted old iMessages.

OS X :: Free Up Local Disk Space On MacBook?

Aug 1, 2007

OK, so I am completely new to mac. The last time I used a mac computer was when my family had one around 1994/1995. So, I don't know how to do completely basic things like this.

I got my macbook on Saturday, less than a week ago. Last night I bought the Sims 2 at the apple store and I asked the guy if it would run good on it. He went through all of the requirements and said that my computer surpassed all of them.

So I go to run it and it won't run and says I need to free up local disk space. Basically I'm wicked pissed right now and am worrying that something is wrong with my computer or he was lying and I can't return it. How do I free this up? Is it a big deal that I need to do this after having the computer for less than 5 days? This is the only big program I've installed so far. I've only installed basic stuff like office and my printer so I don't know how it could be out of space already.

OS X :: Disk Utility Showing Low Free Space

Jan 6, 2009

I am using a Mac Mini, Which is having a capacity of 74.2 GB. Hardly I made use of 15 or 16 GB of that. As I felt some slowness, I tried running "Disk Utility". Recently I found that the free space is only 2.4GB, instead of around 55GB..

Disk Utility is showing
USED SPACE :71.8GB

If i am calculating all folders in "Machintosh HD" (Application, Library,System, etc..), it wil come around 14-15 GB only.

Mac Pro :: Using Disk Utility Erase Free Space?

Feb 10, 2009

i was Erasing Free Space in Disk Utility, after a while I needed to Force Quit another program but I mistakenly quit Disk Utility and now it says I only have 3.1 GB space available when it should be around 270 GB available. I'm sure Disk Utility said it was 'Creating Temporary File' at this time this happened.

I'm now also getting a message which states I need to clear out space on my start up disk.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Disk Not Showing Free Space

Apr 21, 2012

I just cleaned out my HDD on my 2008 MBP and am still getting about the same amount of available space as I did when I started. I must have cleaned anywhere from 50-150GB of stuff from the hard drive and no space has been freed up. I ran a scan with my trusty Daisydick which has never let me down and it showd what I thought to be a very much more accurate amout of free space now but the system says otherise as dones another scanner. Also I cant seem to figure out for the life of me what this extra 99GB of "other" space is. Below is a link to the screenshot I took. I really try to keep things very light and tidy on here.

OS X :: Erase Free Disk Space Function Error?

Oct 18, 2010

I interrupted the erase free disk space function and I ended up with zero kb of space left on my HD. I have tried to find the EFTFile1.sparseimage file to no avail. I have also tried deleting other files in order to "flush out" the trash and hopefully open up the rest of the space, but that didn't work either.
