    My Wife was using our 15" MacBook Pro (Model just before unibody) and it suddenly said that it was out of disk space. zero k available. I check and my iphoto '09 library in the pictures folder and it is 42.85 GB but in iphoto it says there is only 27.3 GB of information. Can any one help!

    Not much of an iPhoto guy ... but here's an obvious question: How much do you have in your iPhoto trash?

    If emptying it doesn't solve the problem, you might want to download GrandPerspective.

    GP is small (you'll need 2 or 3 megs cleared from your hard disk) and it gives a visual representation of the files on your hard disk. It'll show if you have a ginormous console file. Or if someone was noodling around with GarageBand. Or if there's some massive video file eating up real estate.
