    Hi!

    I'm wanting to upgrade to Lion, but at the moment I only have 8GB free. Will this cause any problems? I can always unload some files to run the download and upgrade, but will I have the space available after the upgrade?

    Thanks! :apple::D

    Whether you upgrade or not, you really need more than 8gig of hard drive space. About 10% of your HDD is the accepted minimum for efficient running of your Mac.
