How can I find that information?
I need to ask another question, but I'm getting that same answer.
How do I get around that access denied error?
So I have 90 gigs is tied up within "User" and 10gb within LIbrary > Application Support > MobileSync.
Do you know what Mobile Sync is?
Last question - there are som applications I can delete. On a Mac, does deleting them uninstall them as well? I know on Windows you need to uninstall, but how does it work on Mac?
You're most welcome Stephen. Stephen, I've one more suggestion. Download and install this utility, Onyx from here : http://www.macupdate.com/app/mac/11582/onyxOpen Onyx. In Onyx, click on Maintenance tab. Select Rebuild tab, check all boxes and then Execute. The under Cleaning select System and User and check all boxes on both and Execute. This will fix all system files, clean out old unwanted files and caches etc from your Mac.Keep Onyx. It is the best maintainance utility out there.Best Regards,Ashik
onyx recommendes I go to disk utility. After verifying my disk,
disk utility said I need to repair disk. Its telling me to use a startup disk, but I dont have one.
1. Is there another way to do it?
2. Is there going to mess up my computer in any way?
1. I don't have the repair disks, can I just click "Repair Disk Permissions" in Disk Utility after a normal boot? (The "Repair Disk" on the right is greyed out)
2. But doing this repair in disk utility, will it cause any problems to my computer?
I already verified it and it is telling me to repair. however, the "repair disk" on the right is greyed out, while "repair disk permissions" on the left I can click.
I can't send you the photo bc Justanswer is having problems with their site (access denied errors)
Then we can run Disk Utility (Repair Disk) from Single User Mode. Follow the steps below to run Disk Utility in Single User Mode. Turn your Mac off. Turn it back on and hold down the Command (Apple) key and the S keys at the same time. This will boot your Mac into Single User Mode (black screen with white letters). Then type the following commands... /sbin/fsck -fy (note the space between fsck and -fy) If you can't run /sbin/fsck -fy then type only fsk - fy Hit return and the disk utility should run and let it finish. When it finishes and there is no error, then type reboot and hit return. Let the Mac boot up.
Let me know how it goes Stephen
Everything going smoothly so far, and I'm on the 2nd step of onyx.
1. I've clicked system and user and checked all the boxes. Do I hit execute twice? Once while in system and once while in user? The reason I ask is because there are boxes checked in the other tabs....
Everything seemed to have gone smoothly, thank you for your help!
I did notice that my "Google Drive" folder disappeared from my Places list in finder. There were a few other things too, but I don't remember what they were... in any event, would be good to get that one back. Do you know how?
Hmmm... but it doesn't give me the option to check it. Do you know how I can add it?
Unfortuantely, no. It jsut installed it, but didn't add the shortcut...
Yes! Thanks again for all your help!
Thanks for following up, Ashik. At this point, everything seems to be working properly. If I have any questions, I will let you know.
Hey Ashik - quick question, can I delete the "cache" folder in Omni or will it cause problems? Its 2.7 gb of space that I could really use...
