The following are some tips to free up Mac disk space and you can employ any of the following tips to increase the free space available on your Mac OS X startup disk without altering your hardware.

Empty the Trash

Trash under Mac OS X is just like the Recycle bin under Windows OS. For Apple users, most of them just drag those useless files to the transh and forget to empty the Trash. Day after day, files in the Trash have been piled up and taken great space for Mac disk. In Finder, select Finder > Empty Trash or, under Mac OS X 10.3 or later, you can also select Finder > Secure Empty Trash.

Do not use the Trash as a temporary storage area: only put an object in the Trash if you are sure it is no longer needed.

Some applications, such as iPhoto and Mail, have their own Trash, separate from the Trash seen in the Dock. Emptying the application's Trash may delete its contents immediately or move its contents to your personal Trash, which you can then empty as noted above.

Archive unused files.

This consolidates multiple files and folders into a single file and also compresses the data size so that it takes up less room on my Mac OS X hard drive. Drag any documents, pictures or folders into a single file. Right-click on the folder and select "Archive" from the pop-up menu. Mac OS X will compress each individual file into a single file.

Run a cleanup software

Run a cleanup software to delete unused system files and logs that may be taking up space on my Mac OS X hard drive.
