Mac OS X Disk Space Decrease….

November 21, 2009 Leave a comment

A few months ago, i realized that my disk space in my macbook decrease. I thought it caused by installed applications and my datas.

So i moved lot of the datas to my computer and remove unused-applications to increase my disk space. At that time i felt, “Oh Dude, why this tasks only increase a few gigs T.T”

I felt curious, what was the caused of this…?? Xcode??? or ….???

I checked it through Terminal by typing these command as root

# cd /

# du -hd1

Through this command i see that the folder /cores used almost 25G *WEW 😦

there were a lot of files there which prefix is core.xxxx… I didn’t delete it instantly, because i’m afraid whether those files are a filesystem or not… this folder isn’t appear at finder (it’s hidden)

I searched through Google and found that those files are images of the computer memory that are left for debugging reasons after crashes or forced restarts.

Knew that those files aren’t important, i could delete them safely 😀

Just Open the terminal, and switched as root then fype these commands :

# cd /cores/

# rm -rf *

Done…. ^^

Mac Bergoyang :)

Baru2 ini… [basbang banget yah hehehe] penulis baru sadar bahwa pada Macbook penulis terdapat Sudden Motion Sensor, pengguna mac mungkin [seperti penulis] banyak yang tidak tahu tentang keberadaan dari sensor ini…

Sensor ini berguna untuk melakukan proteksi pada mac, misalnya saat macbook terjatuh, sensor ini akan melakukan proteksi terhadap data yang terdapat pada harddisk drive untuk memperkecil kerusakan pada disk head harddisk drive…


Selain kegunaan tersebut, sensor ini dapat dilihat secara langsung untuk unjuk gigi kepada pengguna notebook lain dengan menggunakan software LiquidMac
