Space should not just go away. Certainly not at that rate when you are doing nothing except running the screen saver.
Could you describe what you were doing as the available space was sliding away from you.
6Gb of space is a lot to loose for nothing.
Is this machine new and what is the OS that you are running?
The other week I bought my second mac product ( i loved my powerbook too the death), an ibook with 40 GB HD. When I first got it and before I did anything, it said that the HD only had 30GB of available space. I didnt think much about it but soon after, it said I had only 25.50GB of available space. Later that same day, the total went down to 24.01GB, and I hadn't installed anything, no widgets, NOTHING!
Is there a control panel where I can clean up the HD or uninstall programs?
any suggestions would be greatly appreciated
