    How to fix storage space problem in Macbook Pro?

    Recently I copied around 50GB of songs to my Macbook Pro and when I tried to check with the properties for the storage space it consumed it shows as 110GB, Why it is like that?

    I am sure that the songs which I copied is around 50GB and not 100+ GB. Where itís going wrong? Is it the problem with the music files which I copied? or with the Macbook Pro? How to fix and overcome this problem?

    Hello dear................
    This type of problem is occured in two ways
    1.As the music files may be copied twice.So,check the MACbook for duplicate files.

    If not so..........
    2. Some type of bugs or Virus will create these type of things.(creating duplicate files,throjans, .exe files.........).
    Clean the mac book with efficient anti virus.

    Clear cache,cookies,temp data......Will also provide some free space.............

    Hope you understand.............Thank you....................

    Hello friend,


    I have the solution for your problem just do as i say............

    1.Firstly i want to say you that you may have copied those file twice.

    2.So you Storage space have been occupied that much.

    3.You try to delete the unwanted files.

    4.Some files of that drive may be hidden so you unhide those files and delete them to re-gain the storage space.

    5.Or this may be the problem of your Hard Disk.

    6.So you try to check your Hard Disk by taking it to the near by service store.

    All the best................

    If you're using any of the track with Players by adding to it , it requires the space and take the space granted, this might happen in your case.

    Don't think that it will be definetly happen, it may any attack of virus also displays like that. Take the Backup and check for the virus by scan.

    And also check the storage space Details, if any other files contains most of the space.

    Delete cookies and temp files .

    Thanks and i hope that it will helps you, We are ready clarify you any type of queries.

    Re: How to fix storage space problem in Macbook Pro?

    Dear Friend..

    This is neither hardware problem nor the songs which you copied.
    This is all about your hard disk space which already contains or pre-consumed some files, data or folders which are hidden. Due to this, there is not enough space left in the hard disk and the error occurs.

    Check your hard disk properties and see is there any file which is hidden by mistake, if it is, then make it visible and if there is any file which is taking lot of space, then just delete from the hard disk.

    If you find that there is no hidden files in the hard drive, then there might some hidden folder or file in your songs files which is not shown during properties check,
    So also check your songs properties on hidden mode as well, you will definitely get a hidden file and try to create some empty space in your storage.

    Only these possibilities might be there.
    Thank you...
