I don't know what happened, but for some reason, my hd space was eaten up and now I don't have any space left. btw: I have 500gb hd. I doubt I had 500gb worth of files. I normally backup with my hardrive, how are the backups being created if you save backup in "iTunes this computer" instead of icloud (I don't have big icloud space). I have 128gb 6+ and I wonder if the actual backup space is reflective on how big my files is. i.e. 75gb worth of data will eat up 75 from my hd? am I making any sense? basically something is consuming all my hd resources, and I don't know why all of a sudden my drive is full. anyone encountered this?
