    insufficient disk space when I just cleared it
    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

    Specs:

    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.

    Imac 27", i7 3.5GHz, 3TB Fusion drive, 32GB memory, macOS Sierra.
    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!
