I have an iMacDV 400 with OSX 10.3.9 and OS 9.2 which will run either as Classic or as the StartUp system. Under 20.3.9, using Get info, the HD shows 3.85 GB available, but when booted under 9.2, using Get Info the HD shows just 3.44 GB available.
Can anyone explain why the available HD space is different under the two systems?
There was a comment in another thread that a Mac needs some free hard drive space to boot up.
Maybe the 'Get Info' makes allowances for that and the free hard drive space required for OS 9 is different than for OS X.
