An easy way to make free space is to eliminate junk information. For example, those files that you don't use on a daily basis or are not important. Such as images, videos, audios, songs, apps, documents, books, among others.

Likewise, if your Macbook is a bit slow, you may need to free up some RAM. On the other hand, if the problem is that a lot of the things you have saved on your device cannot be erased, we can help you fix it here.



What to do if I don't want to delete my files?

People at some point in their life have had information and documents that are worth "Gold" and for nothing in the world they want to delete them, but on the contrary, find a way to save them. Although among all some unnecessary files and programs that you can delete can never infiltrate.

The solution?

The solution is within everyone's reach, you have to increase the storage space of your MacBook through an outside helper.

Which deposit to choose?

You should first ask yourself if you want a portable space helper or one that you can use from your own home. Here are two common types of storage:

If in your case you want to copy some files, you usually don't need fast storage but with one higher retention of gigabytes on the hard disk, taking into account that they have been designed not to move from one place to another.

Likewise, if you want a nimble and fast one, it is advisable to use a portable archive. This will allow you to manage and administer your documents from anywhere.


Hard drives require a period of time to access data. They are a bit slow because their process is mechanical, this creates a disadvantage. Falling or hitting oneself can suffer a consequence. However, hard drives offer more storage capacity to hold all types of documents than solid state drives.


Solid state drives are fastas well as being electronic and small in form. They cannot be damaged mechanically or physically. You can take them anywhere, they are less noisy than hard drives, but unfortunately they are expensive.

Store and delete data manually

Aside from using hard drives or solid state drives, another basic way to free up space is to do it manually from your mobile device.

Archivia with MacOS Sierra

MacOS Sierra is a tool that works to protect your information through iCloud. In it you can save images, downloads, documents, videos and more. To access them you just have to download them directly from the cloud.

The automatic Mac detects plagiarized downloads and alone retains the original. Also, it eliminates languages, letter characteristics and dictionaries that are not useful. Free up cache, logs, and other backup identifications when storage needs to be expanded.


iCloud saves space

In iCloud, there are several options to save photos, images, messages, videos and documents without using an external drive. The free storage it has is 1GB. To expand it you have to pay.

Tame the mess

Identify large and small files, delete unnecessary ones by clicking on the "check files" option. Then, select a category, enter one and decide which document to delete.


Use a TarDisk

The advantage of using an SD card or TarDisk is that increase the space on your MacBook. It is available for MacBook, as on other devices. When you first insert it, please note that you need to go directly to TarDisk and align it with your Mac's internal storage. Running it this way will use the SD card as a backup.
