Open Console in Utilities & see if there are any clues or repeating messages when this happens.
I think you should get Applejack...
After installing, reboot holding down CMD+s, (+s), then when the DOS like prompt shows, type in...
Then let it do all 6 of it's things.
At least it'll eliminate some questions if it doesn't fix it.
The 6 things it does are...
Correct any Disk problems.
Clear out Cache Files.
Repair/check several plist files.
Dump the VM files for a fresh start.
Trash old Log files.
First reboot will be slower, sometimes 2 or 3 restarts will be required for full benefit... my guess is files relying upon other files relying upon other files! :-)
Disconnect the USB cable from any Uninterruptible Power Supply so the system doesn't shut down in the middle of the process.
Just sits there occupying very little space & never interfering, unless you need to invoke it in Single User Mode.

I used Applejack before no help. But it's a good thikk to know and use. Thank you for your reply. I read in 2008's blog about a bug with utorrent. I deinstalled all torrent. I will see.

I never use File Vault. I tried applejack, I deinstalled Utorrent. A bit a pace for one or two days. For one day, I had the error message : your HD is full but with out change in my capacity's HD. Since one or two days, I had the message and the problem : zero meg. I rebot the computer and it's ok for some hours.

The Memory test can really only be trusted if it finds a problem, not if it doesn't find a problem.
Memtest OS X...
Rember is a freeware GUI for the memtest ...

I have a La Cie external HD FW 800 but it's impossible to save when capacity is zero. It's like to dress up in a tiny closet !? Of course I have asked to time machine to do it work. Suprise after back up HD show 61G free !
Thank you for your reply.

thank you for your reply. I could not save on any volume if the HD remaining capacity is zero but if he number change I could. I have not used safe mode since OS 9 it was very usfull at this time. I have booted on safe mode. I will watch what happen

I don't plug all the time my external drives, the La CIe is a big two hd raid model with power supply and three ways power supply : on, auto and off. Since you told me to boot up without extension every think goes well. The computer is satble, no more capacity issue. Of course, I miss sound, may be wif, but it's so simple.
