So yesterday I clean out some old files on my mac book pro, when I was done I had about 15 gigs of space on my hard drive. Today I downloaded a few TV shows using VUZE and I get a message saying I have less to 200mgs. I can't understand how I go from 15 gigs to 200megs in less than 24 hours when I the TV shows I download are deleted right after I watch them. Where did all my hard drive space go?

Thanks in advance

Andrew

Did you empty the Trash after deleting all those files?

OK, there may be some hidden files taking up space. Download the free Disk Inventory X to see what's using the space.

And with only 15GB disk space you need a larger hard drive.

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!
