    Hello dudes,

    It might be a very naive question but I have notice something abnormal in my hard drive capacity.
    I have noticed that my hard drive space is gettting smaller and smaller, first i thought it varies as I use the comptuer.
    So I cleaned the machine out with Oynx last night.
    After the process, I had 183.5gb. and I put the computer on sleep, this morning I checked again and the free space came down to 183.25.gb.
    Is this normal for every computer? or is something eating up my harddrive?:confused:
    :apple:

    That tiny amount is nothing to worry about. Probably the system using some swap space or a similar process. Depends on what applications were running, and also what background processes are working behind the scenes.

    Dropping a few MBs is expected and normal. If you find yourself losing GBs at a time, that's when you should be concerned.
