    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?

    Imac 27", 3.3GHz, 512 flash storage, 16GB memory, macOS Sierra.
    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."
