    i freed up 2.gb of space on my imac yesterday, after browsing the web i found my space had been reduced to 0 bytes. Yes zero.

    I subsequently cleared 17.58GB of space today, ALL i have done since then is stream a football match online and its reduced to 17.51GB.

    Do websites take up desktop space? Is it my emails? i havent been downloading anything so im lost.
