    Hey my MACs startup disk is toally full, and I can boot it up...
    After login screen, it only shows a gray screen, when Cmd+tab I get 'No window', and menu bars and anything is not showen.

    I tried to rebbot into the console to.delete some files, but because my users data is encrypted can't I delete some files.

    Just before I was getting to problem, it said No space left and I deleted alot of unused files. But the free space dis grow, so I rebooted and the.problem started...
    Help please

    I was able to fix this problem by restarting my Mac Mini in Safe Mode (long press Shift key after you hear system chime upon reboot). Simply log into your account, delete some files and reboot. Voila!

    That helped the first time and then when I rebooted I noticed free space was decreasing visibly. I've done the sodu tmutil disablelocal thing in terminal but now I just get a grey screen.
