And that’s a lot, considering it’s just OS and standard updates, no application updates included.

So I thought, okay, cool, I guess I’ll update now.
But no-oh, I don’t have enough free disk space. I need ~13 GB, I have only ~4 GB. ALLEY-OOP.

So there I go, cleaning useless junk off of my computer.
It’s happening… Medium Purge, we’re making this happen!

From a measly four gigabytes of free space, to a pretty decent fifteen free gigabytes.
A lot of old (but small) apps went down my computer’s poop-chute today. They will be sort of missed, and I slightly appreciate the services they’ve done for me.
HOWEVER, the majority of the free space was gotten from moving my photos folder to my external harddisk. Five gigs, up for grabs. Oh I love that feeling.

I’ll be doing the updates now. If I return to a computer with the same amount of free disk space, then curses, that update could’ve been handled way better.
(If that happens, I can conclude it just used all that for unpacking stuff and the likes. If it did everything one by one, or even full-update-downloaded it, it wouldn’t have needed such a preposterous amount of space.)

Wish-eth me the best, my followers.

UPDATE: It now has the exact amount of free memory as before the update. I cleaned for nothing. ):

    Man I’ve known that frustration way too many times. At this point I just got myself an external hard drive and now I’m a computer-file-pack-rat!

    lol I’m wishing you the best. My HDD is a lot bigger than I need it seems. I have an external, but it’s actually taken out of my old laptop, and I haven’t the heart to wipe it even though I don’t need the OS that’s still on it, so it only has sixty gigs on it. I remember a time when no one said “Only sixty gigs” as in gigabytes, people have probably mentioned it about music and comedy for some time lol.
