    I keep getting a message saying my start up disk is almost full and I cannot update my Mac because there is not enough free space. I have already emptied the trash and uninstalled a few usless programs but there is still not enough room. What else can I do to fee up space?

    Video files take up the most space. Delete your porn. You can stream it from the internet anyway.


    I don't have any porn!!! Fer realz!!! I have like 2 twenty second videos...dat's it!!!

    Lol. "Super Duper Important Stuff." Nice title.

    You can schedule a disk clean-up and if that doesn't sufficiently help, buy an external Hard-Drive.

    If you're doing an update, OSX is probably expecting several gigabytes of free space so that it has room to uncompress files, copy temp files, move stuff around, and so on. And when it's all done, all those temp files will be deleted and you get your hard drive space back.

    So go ahead and uninstall a few large programs. Move all your music and porn to the icloud, or to an external hard drive. Then do the OSX update.

    So if I move all my music to my iphone, do I just delete itunes on my mac?

    Just look at your Hard Drive and see which programs are the largest. Do you have any Adobe products? MS Office? itunes alone is probably 50MB at most, so you won't be saving that much space by deleting it. I'm guessing you have a lot of content, like music and movies right?

    Open up terminal and use the du command to help you narrow things down.

    du -sh *

    yourname2000 saidI agree with the advice that if a cleanup doesn't give you significant space, go with an extra hard drive. They're cheap. Internal if you have the room, but otherwise external is fine. I can get a 1TB external for $85 in Canada...it's gotta be cheaper for you.

    Mac hard drives have an extra connector for sensor readings and ya know.. just because. A regular non Mac hard drive should work but it requires shorting the sensor or something. I can't remember the process.

    Or you can defragment your drives and see if that gives you any extra space.

    Try the app from the Mac App Store thing called iBoostUp, it cleans up lots of files. Make sure to read the description before using.
    First time I used it it cleaned like about 1Gb.

    Er... quite the opposite, I'd say. If you've ever installed MS windows on your mac, it could be the problem. I bought "vista" just to control one device in the lab and by default, it just kept downloading more and more crap from microshaft until it filled the entire partition and became useless. If you leave all the defaults on, it will fill up your entire hard drive.

    Does Apple create restore points? If it does, check how many you have, how big they are, and remove older ones.

    Convert to PC!!!
    So much simpler to run, fix and upgrade than a mac. You literally have to wait for the whole thing to crap itself before they bother trying to fix it, or so my mac friends have said. They eventually converted to pc haha.

    If a disk clean up didn't work, maybe try defragging it (not sure how to get there on a mac, so this is really a pointless reply) but it might be talking about RAM so there could be alot of unused programs left on your mac that needs removal.

    I would say go and see your task manager and look at how many processes are active but again, on a mac I've no idea how to direct you there.
