Yeah try using something like this: du /Application du /apps etc Just use the path to where the files/folders of interest are. To find them you can use the grep/find and cat the results into a txt file or simply pipe the results into your du. Depends on where all your files/folders of interest are.

First of you you cannot expand a RAID-1 (Mirror). If you want to make a larger RAID array you will have to back up the drives and recreate the RAID array in a different configuration. Once you have done that you have several configuration options with 4 disks. A quick google of types of RAID will show that... However if it were me I would set up the 4 3TB ...

You bought extra cloud storage, not extra phone/pad memory [which is not possible]. The two are utterly unrelated. You need to transfer some data to a computer, or delete it, to free up extra space on the devices.

It will probably be able to hold a couple hundered pictures, because on my 16gb iPad, I have 125 photos, but it still keeps saying "storage almost full." Still, I am taking pictures, which means I can still keep taking as many pictures as I want to until my iPad gets up to 16gb's.

The smart mailboxes aren't real mailboxes—they're just filters stored in Mail preferences. You can't find the location of the smart mailbox because it's not actually stored separately on disk.

I find it extremely frustrating that Apple holds us in such contempt that it doesn't consider its users to be qualified to decide for themselves how much backup space is necessary, by making this irritating and condescending "error message" (and frankly an unwelcome advertisement) a feature.

You might have better luck with File Salvage or Data Rescue. Both have free trials. However, as another user said, working from the disk where the files were lost decreases the chances of recovery.

All file recovery software does the same thing: searches the disk for places where files are but the catalog says are free. The single most important thing to do to ensure that you can recover an accidentally deleted file is recoverable is to do nothing to the HD. If it is the OS disk then just using the computer runs the risk of the OS writing to some or ...

Sometimes I have seen a lot of space taken up with the "other" category in the graph of space taken up on your iPhone in iTunes. Fixing that is not actually that difficult. Back up your iPhone to your computer (I would encrypt the backup as the backup will then save all your passwords too, which it does not do if you don't encrypt the backup.) Once done go ...

you can see what is eating up storage space: In your Settings app, go to General > Usage > Manage Storage. Your phone will compute the space used by each application and their respective data. Note: Hope I'm right with the menu names as my phone is in french... ;)

Download and install Java. Remove/rename the file /usr/sbin/xtendsan/.iqn.filter or replace the ...

Ok, I believe it takes up double space. I just deleted my iPhoto Library.migratedphotolibrary which was about 90gig of space. HD went from having 220gig of free space to having now 316gig. So I freed up about 90gig of space. Plus when I went to empty the trash folder it took a few minutes.

You said you don't want to wipe the phone and reset it, but what about restoring it from a backup? During an iCloud restore, iOS re-downloads most of what it needs from Apple’s servers, so the process might reclaim your lost space, since iOS wouldn’t assign it to anything that isn't actually using it. After the restore, your phone would be returned to the ...

If you know the name of one of the movies (files) that you are looking for or if you know what format the movie is in (extension) then you should be able to use Spotlight search My favorite way to bring it up is hit Command-Space and you will see a search bar in the middle of your screen (Yosemite) Start typing the name or file extension and if it ...

Go to Settings > General > Date & Time Untoggle "Set Automatically" Manually set the date a year or two in the past Open "Photos" Select "Albums" If, like me, you had already cleared out everything from the Camera Roll and "Recently Deleted" folder, you'll smile to see that your "Recently Deleted" folder now has thousands of images back. Those are your ...

If you are on iOS 8, you can go to Settings > General > Usage > Storage > Manage Storage > Music, slide the first item "All Songs" to the left and press "Delete". Warning: there is no confirmation dialog, as I've just found out :|

Upon choosing ...

What to do when you do not have enough storage because your backup size is too large: Delete the current backup on your iCloud for that specific iOS device. Your iCloud backup is now automatically turned off, so turn it back on. A new backup is made and has a reasonable size. Theoretically your phone could crash in the short while you do not have a ...

My answer is based on My personal experience, so this may or may not be valid for you. Based on the information provided by you, it reminded me of a similar situation I had face sometime back. iCloud not back's up the recent backup data but also saves the backup files backed up before, As in, If I created a backup today, and then I created a backup next ...
