Hi,

yesterday I closed my MBA without any problem but today it was opening 45 minutes

there is no finder on right top corner,

I can see drives on desktop but I can't open them,

When I put a pen-drive, an icon appears but I can't open it

When I copy any text I can't past it, the massage says "there is no enough space on hard drive"

I don't have access to Disk Utility because I moved it to a folder "inne" which is blank

what can I do?

please help

Have you tried shutting down your computer and restarting it?

thanks for interests,

I've tried many times, sometimes it starts, sometimes at the beginning it ask which drive to choose, other times it gets frozen and it always lasts approximately 30-45 minutes

We had a similar issue with a MBA at the place I work. When it booted, it would take 30+ mins, logging in was near impossible. Drive showed as full.

We had it repaired, turns out it was a bad hard drive.

I recommend you backup your files if you haven't already, (we had to install OS X onto a USB hard drive, boot the MBA from that, then copy the files from the MBA drive onto the USB one). Disk utility is included on the OS X install disc.
