    Everyday I see an alert in the server app informing me that the startup disk is full, even though it's not. There's still 35GB available.

    Any ideas?

    Do you have Microsoft Outlook on your MacBook Air?

    Recently, I constantly got "Startup Disk is full" even when I removed some large files. After I checked all my photos, music and movies, I started to suspect Microsoft Outlook, for I had problems with it in the beginning. I tried to find Outlook file directory of Outlook and could not find the directory nor my personal mail file (pst files). So I played around and went to Tools\Run Schedule\Empty Deleted Items Folder, and tried to permanently delete all deleted messages. I was a little concerned when it took about 10 minutes to complete, and has obviously cleaned up multiple folders.

    When it's done, I have emptied trash can and shutdown my MacBook Air (Yosemite). When restarted, I was so pleased I got 28GB of my 128GB system Disk storage back.
