How do I solve this problem? The storage space does not increase when I delete files. Yesterday, I deleted 250MB of files but made zero change to storage space. I have emptied the trash. I don't use Time Machine

    It wont do it instantly, till the Spotlight has finished re indexing. Or try to restart. – Ruskes Dec 13 '14 at 23:24

GrandPerspective is a great app to visualize the files taking up the most space on your Mac. Next time you want to delete a file, use GP to scan your computer before and after you empty the Trash, and see what's still taking up space.

  • I don't need an app to identity large files. No matter what file I delete, it is not increasing my storage space – user104609 Dec 15 '14 at 17:55
  • But if you run a scan, delete space-hogging items, and then run a second scan, you can see where that excess space went. – user24601 Dec 15 '14 at 18:37

Have you tried restarting the computer. It may have not refreshed the current available storage.
