I have a older macbook, which is a 13 inch laptop. I was running OS X Lion and decided to erase my hard drive and start over with Ubuntu. Now when I try to download Ubuntu or other software, I get an error message that says I do not have enough free disk space to even start the download. How can this be if I just erased my hard drive? In addition to this I am not sure I erased my computer correctly. I am not computer savvy and will appreciate any insight for this problem. Here is the latest error message: Safari could not download the file “regservo_2.0.5.0.exe” because there is not enough free disk space.

  • What is the exact error message? Does it tell you where you need to free disk space? – SuperSluether Dec 31 '15 at 1:43
  • Could you add the output of df -h in your question? – Tung Tran Dec 31 '15 at 3:32
  • regservo_2.0.5.0.exe does not look like a OS X or Ubuntu program. Those files normally belong to Windows. – maxhb Jan 6 '16 at 6:41
  • Make partition bigger, at least 30GB (recommended 100GB) and you will not have this problem again. – Cornea Valentin Jun 4 '18 at 10:27
