In the last few days I have been getting a message coming up saying my Start Up Disk is nearly full and I need to delete items. After searching through Help I am not getting anywhere and don't know what this means. Anyone care to help?!
Thanks

What that means is your system disk is getting full. You will need to do some house keeping. The first thing to do is empty the trash in case you have never done that.

Thnks rman - can you believe that I never have?! Done it and miraculously space has appeared. I think what confused me was the phrase "Startup Disk"
