    Exclamation Snow Leopard not showing full memory?
    Ok so i tried to download lion but i failed so i took my MacBook to the Apple Store and he put SL back on but now when i launch disk utilities it says my Macs Harddrive capacity is 159 but only 16 gb avaible and 15 gb used?? How can i fix this without going back to the Apple store(its far) and i dont have the restore disc. Is it because lions install files are still on here?

    How many partitions are on the drive? See if you can post a screen shot of Disk Utility.
    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!

    "Memory" refers to RAM and has nothing to do with what you are talking about. You mean "space" or "storage."
