You write you have only 1Gb storage on title and in text you write 96GB, which looks more real.
If you use Aperture this means you have a lot of pictures. Are they stored inside Aperture on on external drive (referenced). Moving the photos to an external drive could be a way to recover some storage.
According to specification http://www.apple.com/it/aperture/specs/ you need OSX 10.7.4. Do you have it ?
Thanks, Walter. Yes, I have 96GB of storage available. I have OSX 10.8.2. I have 19,000 pictures which are stored on the laptop in the iPhoto/Aperture library. The Apple folks said my problem is the lack of available RAM to run Aperture, and that storing the photos on a external drive wouldn't help. Any
Thanks for the points Sue.
With 8GB will be a different music. And if you move the picture to an external drive you will recover a lot of free space on the internal drive.
I do not know how deep you know Aperture; therfore I beg your pardof if I say something obvious.
Picture on external drive and not inside Aperture means "Referenced" insted of "managed".
This will not be as simple as a copy and past.
You will find something here : https://discussions.apple.com/message/16410418#16410418
And after do not forget to make a second Hard Disc with another copy as a backup.
Happy picture taking !!!
