    Memory & re-boot problem?
    Hi all,

    I have a Power Mac G4. Throughout the day while using my Mac I eventually reach "Zero KB" available. When That happens I restart my Mac, and all the 'stuff' is removed, giving me 150Mb or so to work with. Today however, after restarting my computer I still had 'Zero KB' available and there was no 'recovered files' folder in the recycle bin as always happens when I restart. Any ideas?

    Thanks,

    If you are seeing this with hard drive space you need to clear some space. I too am a little confused about whether we are talking hard drive space or memory.

    You need a new, larger hard drive period. Problems with less than 15% free space.
    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!
