  1. That's true, but I told him to check the trash and he said nothing was there. Maybe it is a hidden file and he needs to empty it? I'll tell him to try that when I get the chance.
  2. Thanks again for the posts everyone. It's unfortunate that there's no mac users around who know where such a file is at when they are running ccleaner or disk utility. I'll just have to keep trying different methods in the mean time
  3. Oh after reading around I knew it was no cause for panic. I'm just not sure how to go about finding this pesky file/folder on a mac.
  4. Hi, I have been searching around the internet for advice with this issue and I have seen this thread: http://forum.piriform.com/index.php?showtopic=35239 but I wanted to make another thread to bring up this problem again and I wasn't sure whether I should use an old pre-existing one or not. My friend is having an issue with his macbook pro right now after using ccleaner to clear his free space (he used the 7 wipe option I think it was, if that matters). What it did was was the consensus of the other thread, that it filled up his harddrive so that no space was left and now he cannot download anything right now. I was wondering if anyone has some way to either automatically delete this giant junk file/folder (like using the disk utility or ccleaner again-spooked it could compound the problem though), knows how I can find it manually without using an external program since he can't download anything nor has a way of getting the program onto a flashdrive from another computer at the moment, or knows some common locations where the file/folder is located and what names it will have. Hopefully there's a couple more people who are experienced with mac who can help compared with the last thread!
