    It seems like I'm always fluctuating between 2 and 9 gb of free space on my hard drive. Every time I need lots of space it seems to disappear, then it reappears in a week. Is this normal? If I'm low is there something I can run to bring this space back?

    Thanks! :)

    It could be your paging file is growing as you use your Mac, then when you reboot it starts over. How much RAM do you have?
