    I did the softupgrade and the partition is practically full. I only have installer and BSD installed. I never encountered this problem prior to 1.1.3

    Fix disk and BossTools don't seem to work, but honestly, I'd rather not move the applications if something else is to blame for the lack of space (ie: 1.1.3 installation file?)

    It doesn't really matter what is to blame for the lack of space. The end result is that if you plan on adding many apps you will need to move the App folder.

    I did this a while back via terminal following these instructions, anyone know if this will work on 113?

    cd /
    cp -pr Applications /var/root
    mv Applications Applications.old
    ln -s private/var/root/Applications /Applications

    I am just concerned because I had a TON of apps on the partition prior to 1.1.3 and never encountered this problem. BossTools and Fix Disk aren't working!!

    That might mean that 113 fills up the OS partition quicker than 112. Since 113 intends official apps to be stored elsewhere this makes perfect sense; why have a bunch of wasted empty space.

    I guess it doesn't really matter how 112 did it since 113 is a different animal, and the only thing that matters is that you need to move the apps folder.

    Any other solutions than BossTools and Fix disk space? Neither of them work for some reason! BossTools does nothing, and Fix Disk Space gives me a main script execution error.

    I posted the 112 fix I used. Not sure if it works on 113.
