I have a 2008 MBP with 250 GB hard drive. I've been getting messages sporadically that my startup disk was almost full, and have been backing up (Time Machine), copying files to an EHD, deleting unnecessary apps and files, etc. Just happened again and I have just over 1 GB free.

What am I missing? I've moved and deleted thousands of photos, emptied iPhoto trash and emptied the Trash. Deleted apps that were old versions and have since been updated. Am I really that full, or am I missing something else that I should be doing when trying to free up space? I am using the 'secure empty trash' function, if that is important to know.

As always - thanks in advance from a Mac-loving user who understands little about how they work!

MBP, Mac OS X (10.6.6)
