    Does anyone know what the minimum amount of free space that is required for you computer to startup/run correctly? I have been told that it needs at least a couple gigs but I have a mac thats worked fine with only 250 MB free, so I'm confused.

    My rule of thumb is that 5-10% of the system disk should be available.
