    So, I had my hard drive replaced a few months ago under warranty with the whole Seagate recall issue...I have no idea if this has something to do with it but I'm getting the "Startup Disk is Almost Full" and "Startup Disk is Full" messages but it doesn't appear that it is? Any help or tips are appreciated...I'm no Mac whiz. :(

    Try resetting your smc, unplug the power cable from the back of the iMac, count to 10, plug back in, count to 5, turn computer on. That doesn't work try resetting PRAM.

    Shut down your Mac.
    Locate the following keys on the keyboard: Command (⌘), Option, P, and R. You will need to hold these keys down simultaneously in step 4.
    Turn on the computer.
    Press and hold the Command-Option-P-R keys before the gray screen appears.
    Hold the keys down until the computer restarts and you hear the startup sound for the second time.
    Release the keys.
