The only reason you would still be using disk space is if you haven't Emptied the trash can (assuming you deleted files that are large enough to count.) On the Dock you can Click on the Trash, in the right upper side of the window is an Empty button. Press that and you should end up with an empty window. If you get an error about deleting certain files, try holding down the Option key on the keyboard when you click Empty. If this doesn't help download "Disk Inventory X" (a free utility, google it) to see where your file space is going. Sometimes you delete a bunch of stuff, but a log for or something else has gone crazy and is still taking up all the space. Disk Inventory X will help you see that kind of thing. Hope that helps.

Start up disc is full on my mac book air, what do i click?


If the disk is full, you'll need to move files elsewhere -- either cloud storage, external disk, dvd, etc... You might also have lots of junk on the machine - delete things you don't need and empty your recycle bin.

Message on LaCie Hard drive says Hard Drive is full, but I cannot clear


Ensure that your system drive C: is not full, or you get similar troubles. When the external hard drive start giving this kind of troubles usually it is becouse of a bad FAT, the only solution is formatting the hard drive. Store your 15 GB elsewhere and format it.

Speedo Aquabeat is not recognized by my Macbook Pro


I plugged my aquabeat into my mac. It mounted and I deleted all the files onto it. Then, I copied a bunch of mp3 files onto it. The device registered as full and wouldn't let me add any more files even though the info window said there was 250 MB available but this was wrong or misinterpreted by the device. I couldn't make it work. I found there was insufficient capacity for the operational files to be built on the device. I deleted one of the mp3 files to free up space then ejected it which caused it to be unmountable on the mac - it wouldn't turn on at all. I pressed the reset button and it all came to life and now it works as advertised. The device needs to create a bunch of work files for it to start. I believe that it really was out of space and could not create the work files. When I deleted the mp3 it freed up enough space so the work files could be created, but it was frozen. The reset caused the work files to be created and all was well.

Start up disk is almost full


Computer technology moves swiftly and your aging G4 is a casualty in that movement. I suggest purchasing an external hard drive and move your audio files and your video fines to the new drive. Another option is to purchase a larger internal drive for your G4 but the disadvantage it going this route will not be easily transfered to a new computer in the future. The external will give you the freedom to move it from machine to machine.

Zero space to record but no files on camera


MAC Users....

Remember those annoying "hidden files"...that's the problem.

Go to Utilities/ Disk Utility/ (select the Mino)/ Erase (up top)/ Erase (near the bottom)

and the problem will be resolved.....

Make it a great day

Information used- capacity used and available


Re: deleting the files, did you drag the files into the trash bin and then empty it? The files don't actually leave your drive until you 'Empty Trash' on your mac's doc. Hope this helps, not sure about your startup disc problem.

Lacie 320 GB Hard Drive acting as if full when it's not.


Simplest solution: back up the data on the drive and repartition it (which will wipe it). Otherwise it sounds like it could be a problem with the file tree or structure of the drive, the configuration files could be corrupt, some program could have stored temporary files in a hidden place that cannot be deleted without making the program delete them, etc. If you are on a mac, spotlight Disk Utility and use it to repartition. If you are on a PC use the search thing from the start menu and find a program called disk management (or something similar to that, you'll know it when you see it.) external drives are annoying. i kick mine into the wall periodically for good measure.

Recorder says "PLEASE DOWNLOAD FILES," but there are no files to download


The DS-2 has a format option in the menu under submenu. After you choose start you will see a progress bar and it should return to full record time. Use on a MAC seems to cause the reduced record time more often than on a PC.
