    Unhappy Help please!.. You usually don't answer my questions.
    Hello,
    My computer is very slow lately.. My laptop shows I've used 148.61 GB and I have only 12.98 left. I can't figure out what is taking all the space. I got rid of most my photos on the computer (I do photography) and still, I think it freed up about 2 GB. I have quite a few of the Hidden objects games, but they don't show that they are all that big.
    Anyway.. I was using my OnyX program to see if I can help free up some space somehow through this application. When I went to permissions to fix them, it came up with all this stuff:


    Started verify/repair permissions on disk disk0s2 Macintosh HD

    Finished verify/repair permissions on disk disk0s2 Macintosh HD

    It won't seem to fix them... it keeps telling me there are all these problems but won't fix through this application or the application that came with the computer in utilities that is supposed to fix permissions. I tried navigating to the folders they are printing out here (System/Library/CoreServices/Front Row.app/Contents/PlugIns/FRSources.frappliance/Contents/CodeResources", should be -rw-r--r-- , they are lrw-r--r-- ) I go to my Macintosh and then the Library, but I've looked 8 times and there is no "CoreServices" folder in there. I tried searching up "Core" through the macintosh and nothing comes up on my computer. How can I not have CoreServices if they are telling me this is where the problem is on my computer? Is there anyway to fix these permissions? I couldn't figure out how, so I was going to try to manually fix each one, but obviously I can't do that if I can't find it on my computer.
    can ANYBODY help me out? Please?

    Lany,

    I really don't understand your thread title:

    "Help please!.. You usually don't answer my questions."

    You've only posted 2 threads here on Mac-Forums (this is the 2nd one)...and from what I can see...you've gotten multiple responses to both threads???

    Have a read of this and ignore those messages:-

    Mac OS X: Disk Utility's Repair Disk Permissions messages that you can safely ignore

    Your problem is the hard drive is full and you do need about 20% free space for the drive to work anywhere near its peak efficiency. 160GB hard drive by today's standards is tiny, especially if you are into photos and/or music.

    It's there - you're just in the wrong spot. Open up Finder > go to your HD > System > Library > CoreServices. Sounds like you're looking in the library folder that isn't in the System folder. Although you can go there, I would strongly suggest that you don't mess around with anything in there.

    You're going to need to free up some more space. This is an easy way to start solving your problem. Do you have an external HD that you can transfer some files over to?

    Agree…your HD is too full. Load in a larger one or offload some of the files. Voila!

    What program or programs are you using for photography. Some of them will store a lot of information in caché folders without the user being aware of the fact that they keep growing larger as time goes on. Not only that, but if you're rendering 1:1 previews, along with high resolution thumbnails for browsing, then that will hog a lot of space too.

    So. What programs are you using? Photography and non photography related too, I guess.

    Yes.. I do have a external hard drive. But I'm confused to what is taking up so much space.. when I look at my apps & files, I don't see huge ones.. not since I took most my photos off, which is pretty sad because I need to have the photos on the computer.

    Repairing permissions. Since the program told me my computer needed to be fixed after running a check through the OnyX program.

    Ah! okay.. I found it now... I take your suggestion seriously. How do I fix all these naughty errors then? also.. I don't use Front Row, and noticed a lot of those errors are in that application (I'm guessing because it says there are all these mistakes in "FrontRow") Can I take Front Row off the computer entirely?
