View Full Version : PowerBook G4- Alert Disk Full Message

Jul 2, 2010, 11:18 PM
Last night my PB G4 started popping up this Alert Disk Full message. It is telling me to delete some things off of my start up disk. I only had about 1gb free. I downloaded some software to tell me which files are the biggest and was able to delete over 13.5gb and it is still doing the same thing. It happens when I have more than one tab open in Fire Fox, or if I have more than one application open. It is getting super annoying. Any advice on how to fix it would be greatly appreciated.

you may have a failing hdd, go into disk util and click on the hdd look down the bottom and see what the smart status is

The smart status says it is verified. The pop ups have been showing up less frequently, not sure what I did but I'm down a full gig from last night and I have only saved 4 small word files.
