    This make no sense I have 207 GB free on my primary Harddrive (which is my Startup disk) and when editing a photo yesterday I get this message "Your Startup Disk is nearly full.

    This must have just been an error. Unless anyone has a good solution to why this happened.

    There was a bug in later versions of Panther and early versions of Tiger that created a log file which took up as much space as you had. It was easily remedied though, the file just needed to be deleted and the computer restarted. It happens quite quickly, so have you checked that you still have 207GB free? :)

    My Mac is up to date... Disk utility says I have the 207GB free. Hmm

    It is very weird. If it's a one-off and your computer seems to be otherwise behaving normally, I wouldn't worry about it too much. :)
