Mac OS X Low Disk Space Issue

Roxanne updated on Sep 15, 2020 to Mac Cleanup Solution | How-to Articles

The Mac OS X is traditionally viewed as being simpler and less complex than the Windows alternative. But the hard drive in your Mac computer can still become slow if bogged down by too many files and folders. The Mac OS X will meet the same low disk space issue.

Backup your hard drive. This helps protect your personal files if you accidentally delete a file by accident while cleaning up the Mac OS X hard drive. Use a portable hard drive or flash disk, blank CDs or DVDs.

Empty your Mac OS X trash bin. When you delete an item on a Mac, it is placed in the "Trash" in your Mac OS X dock. However, it still takes up hard drive space until you clean out the Mac hard drive by emptying the trash. In the "Finder", click "Finder" in the top menu bar and select "Empty Trash" from the drop-down menu.

Archive files that you do not regularly use. This consolidates multiple files and folders into a single file, and also compresses the data size so that it takes up less room on your Mac OS X hard drive. Drag any documents, pictures or folders into a single folder. 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.
