Start up disk is full - help needed please
Recently, I constantly got “Startup Disk is full” even when I removed some large files. After I checked all my photos, music and movies, I started to suspect Microsoft Outlook, for I had problems with it in the beginning. I tried to find Outlook file directory of Outlook and could not find the directory nor my personal mail file (pst files). So I played around and went to Tools\Run Schedule\Empty Deleted Items Folder, and tried to permanently delete all deleted messages. I was a little concerned when it took about 10 minutes to complete, and has obviously cleaned up multiple folders.
When it’s done, I have emptied trash can and shutdown my MacBook Air (Yosemite). When restarted, I was so pleased I got 28GB of my 128GB system Disk storage back.
i couldn't complete the finding of large files, i found where to put kind, but not the full size selection, i have a macbook is there a different way to do it
Sort by size with cmd control 6. You will see all the folders in there that are big. If you use clean my mac all you do is select the file sizein the pop up thing. I think I have about 300 mb and bigger selected. then you hit scan.

Download Disk Inventory X. This will let you see and remove what's taking up space. I used this to free I kid you not, about 50 gig of stuff I didn't need.
