I have been the proud and happy owner of an ibook G4 running OSX 10.4.8 for a year now with no insurmountable problems that I couldn't work out for myself...until now. (Previously I had a PC; running XP from version 1...boy, THAT was fun!...and am still unfamiliar with where to find "things" on my Mac, although Spotlight is a Godsend.)
On attempting to copy a DVD using both Roxio Toast 7 Platinum and Roxio Popcorn, I was given the following message:
" there is not enough temporary disk space for compression. please delete unused files or select a different disk in the preferences."
Compression is set to "none"
I went to disk utility and checked the disk (Macintosh HD and FUJITSU MHV2060AT) to find the following information:
Capacity: 55.8 GB
Available: 3.5 GB (!!!)
Used: 52.3 GB
Number of files: 326,224
Number of folders: 80, 639
This surprised me by no small amount...about 35 GB worth of surprise!
I have Verified Disk (both "55.9 GB FUJITSU MHV2060AT" and "Macintosh HD" in Disk Utility under First Aid tab and verified permissions (although I have no idea what that means, but equally, I'm sure I don't need to).
55.9 GB FUJITSU passed both Verify Disk and Permissions.
Macintosh HD passed Verify Disk, but shows "The privilages have been verified or repaired onthe selected volume" after Verify Permissions.
On scrolling through the wimdow, I see what appears to be the full list of OSX out the box Applications, with the start of each line reading "Users differ on./Applications/***. should be 0, owner is 501"
Finally, there are a hanful of widgets where pernissions differ: should be "-rw-rw-r--" and they are "-rw-r--r--"
Permissions differ on /Library: should be "drwxrwxr-t" and are "drwxrw-x"
Group differs on /private/etc/authorisation/: should be 80 is 0
Permissions differ on /private/var/log/secure.log/ : should e "-rw-------" and are "-rw-r-----"
Predominantly I use my ibook for storing and editing photos and as a rather oversized ipod. Currently I have 16 GB of music in iTunes. I just put all my pics on disc, so iPhoto is now empty. The only other items are my Applications (photoshop being about the largest).
This may or may not be relevant:
I have been using "Miglia TV Mini eye tv for Mac" recently to record a series of programs from the tv. Each program was 30 mins in duration and after somewhere between 4 and 6 hours (saved to "movies") I received a similar message. I burned all the programmes to dvd, and deleted from HD: problem solved. (the movies folder is now empty also)
Is it possible that my temporary files are not being cleared on restart?
Where do I fimd my temporary files? (I feel as if I have looked everywhere I can without the use of a screwdriver!)
Apologies for the rather long-winded question bit I am simply trying to give you as much relevant and probably irrelevant information to work with.
Many thanks for your time taken to read this.
