Says I don't have enough storage space...how do I remove stuff from my start up disc?
well just delete apps, but first go to the apple menu on the top left and then go about this mac and look for storage and see whats using your memory
First download a program called Disk Inventory X and run it on your drive. That will give you a good idea of what's taking up your storage and you can proceed from there by deleting the files yourself, or moving them to an external drive, or asking more specific questions in this forum.
Don't just start deleting apps as the other poster suggested. The chances you will recover a meaningful amount of space from this is probably small and you probably want those apps anyway.
I bet you probably have a bunch of old photos or videos on your drive that you forgot about and could easily move to an external drive without it impacting your life in any meaningful way.
42.5 GB is using OTHER... ...
Interesting that now two people have recommended Disk Inventory X, which is a small program, costs nothing, and takes less than 5 minutes to download and run and see what's taking up space on your drive.
But for some reason you seem more interested in posting dumb questions on this forum rather than doing this simple thing that would solve your problem.
Do whatever you want, I guess.
Guys, I downloaded DISK Iventory X and it shows lots of space being taking up...how do I delete that stuff I see?
Better, to replace your internal SSD with one from Transcend. A 64GB SSD is simply to small IMHO, to be very productive.
Do Yourself a favor and replace it with something larger.

^^^^Hey guy did you happen to read what the heck I wrote????? I never said don't organize your work, I said that
And before you start calling folks stupid - Look at yourself in the mirror. I've tolerated a lot of your BS in threads on this forum, but attacking me is just not acceptable.
You don't have to agree with everything I recommend or say, but insults are not productive.
If it were me I would copy the Backup directory to an external drive and than delete it. Than after you install Yosemite you can move it back. The install of OS X uses more space during install than after it is installed.
I did read what you said.
Really? Better? Than what? Than trying to figure out what's taking up space and seeing whether or not it's necessary? Just buy a new drive?
