    Here's the issue.
    I put a few TV shows on download last night and went to sleep. Woke up and saw the error message, 'Not enough disk space'.
    I have a 2011 Macbook Air i7 with 256GB SSD. I have a LOT of FLAC music, photos, Movies, etc. What do I do how do I manage this. Because, I synch my music to my idevices, I can't imagine how keeping my music externally will help?
    This is really nerve wracking. I'm not going to buy a new notebook till I go to college which is next fall...

    Delete some files? Store some files on external drive? Its actually very easy solution.

    Hard to say - I love daisy disk - very helpful for see where your space is going.

    The OP should checkout "Disk Inventory X". That'll show you the breakdown of your SSD.

    You have.....

    Thunderbolt and USB 2.0 there, so it will be tricky. Thunderbolt is faster, but pricey. USB 2.0, no so fast, cheaper. Seems all boil down to your budget.
