I just upgraded my HD from the puny 30GB it came with (TiPB circa 2001, 667MHz w/ 512 RAM, OSX10.4) to a 120GB. Installed at a certified installer.
However, I'm now at approx. 48GB and I'm getting error messages in Tomato Torrent and iTunes that the disk is full! What gives?? I've been able to transfer files from my flash drive to the HD after the torrent messages (about 60MB worth), but now I'm having to delete movies/tv-shows in order to download new ones. I tried moving the offending files into new directories, but it didn't work.
How did you transfer your data from the old HD to the new HD? You're not out of space if you've only used 48GB.. the OS is reporting incorrect values. Correctable most of the time by using a high-end disk utility or reformatting. (assuming that is actually the issue.) If you open Macintosh HD, it should say at the bottom of the window how much free space remains -- what does it say? TiBook's had no HD size restrictions (not at 120GB, anyway).
The apple tech used a disk image program to copy over my OS and all my files (so I could save the labour costs of re-installing the OS again and having him burn all my files to disk). My HD is reporting 46GB used, 65GB free. Will I have to re-format?? I'd really rather not have to do that, but if it's necessary ...
Is there a disk utility that I could use? What would you recommend? I'm willing to pay for it, if it saves me from having to re-format my disk (as I have some programs that I no longer have the disks for, like Matlab, which I got while I was at University).
Updated my OS with the latest update for 10.4 & re-installed Tomato. Everything seems to be working normal now, no more error messages ... so far. I have no idea what was wrong, but everthing seems to be back to normal.
