    Hi,

    This morning I had about 3Gb free hard rive space, this evening after getting home in the evening I have 0 kb free.

    Has anybody has this problem? Is my hard drive busy dying?

    Mac OS X 10.4.11, 2.33 Ghz MPB


    Thanks

    Sounds like normal virtual memory usage.

    Get a bigger hard drive or free up some more space.

    What size hard drive do you have in your MBP? I recommend having a minimum 10% free on your hard drive. Mac OIS X needs room to breath and with only 3GB, it doesn't have much room. That 3GB of space will become fragmented fast! I would say you need to open up some space on your hard drive.
    For why it now says 0KB, I agree with the first poster, probably virtual memory or temporary files etc.

    Ok, its 120Gb - will have to move some files to external storage, to get the 10%.
    I was just worried, as i had no programs running

    Thanks for the help
