    HEELP,,
    I had no available space left on my macbook pro 120gb hard drive,, around 100mb.
    So I obviously had to erase some stuff,, so I first deleted a 3gb file, emptied the trash.
    Still, only 100mb available.
    So I deleted about 15 gb of app's, large videos, etc.
    Still only 100 mb available, after emptying trash.
    I logged out, restarted, shut it down, etc.
    Still only 100 mb available space.

    I tried to do a verify disk in disk utility, and it just crashes.
    I tried secure empty trash, still no HD space.

    Whats wrong? I have found no answers online, seems like no one has this problem.
    Do I need to format my hard drive, and reinstall mac os x?
    THanks..
    Oh im runnigin 10.5 leopard

    Do you have any third-party back up applications?

    Before doing something as drastic as reinstalling try using Disk Inventory X to see what's eating up your HDD space & what needs deleting
