    I don't get why my disc information says that I used 120 GB out of 120, when I only installed Dropbox (not more than 3gb of stuff) and Adobe.

    I have a MacBook Air (Early 2014) with Mavericks preinstalled. I had Yosemite but I wanted to format. I went to the utility panel and then I erased everything on both partitions. After that I had to reinstall Mavericks (-.-) and then downloaded Yosemite. I don't get why now it says that I used 120 GB. Maybe I should delete Mavericks, How can I do so? I don't wanna have Mavericks, since I don't use it..
    Also it says I have 83k folders. How is it possible?


    Thanks.

    Your system is normal. The top volume is a logical volume group. It's always going to show full (I don't know why...it just does). The indented Yosemite is your main volume. It shows 109GB free. The number of folders includes a lot of system folders that are invisible to you. It's all normal.

    You don't delete Mavericks. You'll run the Yosemite installer over Mavericks. Your computer will end up with Yosemite only.

    Also another weird thing: everytime I repair permissions, it finds always something to fix (consider that I do the scan more than 1 time per day..)
