Clearing Space on a Macbook Pro Startup Disk
Having a full startup disk can cause your Macbook Pro to run slowly and become unresponsive. Fortunately, there are several ways to free up space on your Macbook Pro’s startup disk.
Check Your Storage Usage
The first step in clearing space on your Macbook Pro is to check the storage usage of your startup disk. To do this, open the Apple menu and select About This Mac. Then click the Storage tab to view how much space is being used by different types of files. This will help you identify which files are taking up the most space.
Delete Unnecessary Files
Once you have identified which files are taking up the most space, you can delete them to free up space on your Macbook Pro’s startup disk. You can delete files manually by dragging them to the Trash or using the Finder application. You can also use third-party applications such as CleanMyMac X or DaisyDisk to quickly locate and delete large files.
Move Files to an External Drive
If you don’t want to delete any of your files, you can move them to an external drive or cloud storage service such as Dropbox or Google Drive. This will free up space on your Macbook Pro’s startup disk without deleting any of your important files.
