MacBook Pro 5.5 Mac OS X 10.6.8 160 GB hard-drive So, I felt like getting rid of the useless junk lying around on my mbp today. It turns out I have way more useless files than I could've imagined, I really felt good about making that much free room from well... practically nothing. However, after having deleted the files, I was still left with 16GB of free space. I kept on testing it out and after a while I came to the conclusion that no matter how much space I free, it still won't generate any more free space. So, any ideas ? I tried disk repair/permissions repair by booting from the disk, no change. Also, I am no going to format the drive.
