Hi!

 

 

I have a big problem with my iMac with OS X 10.6.8 with iTunes 10.7(21). When i wan't to make a backup from my iPhone 4S with iOS6 i get some errors with the message: iTunes could not back up the iPhone "iPhone" because not enough free space is available on this computer. Remove files and emptying the Trahs will free up additional space.

 

 

On my system partition has more than 200GB of free space.

 

 

df, and df -h output:

storm-lan:~ czo$ df

How can i find which partition has 494116864 bytes free?

 

 

If i try to make the backup after fresh boot, or newly created test user, or just try to to run backup, i see different numbers here, example:

(494116864 < 2359719424 + 134217728)

(495902720 < 2359719424 + 134217728)

(501121024 < 2093123987 + 134217728)

(393895936 < 2408273148 + 134217728)

(395116544 < 2408273152 + 134217728)

(720752640 < 2408268817 + 134217728)

(694030336 < 2408252902 + 134217728)
