Freeing disk space on your Mac

For some reasons you might need to free space on your Mac OS X start up disk. For example you want to install Windows with Boot Camp to use Windows applications which don’t exist for OS X like Revit, Rhino with Grasshopper, etc.

You can free more space by doing the following:

  • Remove downloaded files from your Downloads folder.
  • Remove applications you don’t use any more. More information about removing applications.
  • Backup your old/unused files from your Desktop, Documents, Music, Movies and Pictures folder to another disk or location.

This information about freeing disk space is mainly obtained from The X Lab. You might also want to read other FAQs by The X Lab about Mac OS X.
