My memory on my macbook is used up by videos that I deleted

I had a lot of videos on my macbook pro (128 GB of disk space) so I copied on my external hard drive and deleted (and emptied my recycle bin). It is still saying that I have 70 + GB of videos in my library, but there are no videos at all in there. Randomly, there are only pictures of my iphone I shared on facebook or whatsapp...

How can I find the hidden videos and remove them permanently?

(First time on this forum...) thanks!

Hugh

Are you sure you emptied your Recycle Bin?

  • How to free up RAM memory in my macbook pro

    Hello

    How to free up RAM memory in my macbook pro

    In the current Mac OS x versions, Apple realized that the FREE RAM is not useful for anything whatsoever. What is needed is "instantly available RAM", and they began to be implemented in a number of ways. Free-ing RAM is no longer applicable.

    Some of your RAM may be used by an element called cache. These are copies of files read previously, in the hope that you will need to see again them soon. This RAM is said to be immediately available when an Application makes a request for the new RAM. In addition, little RAM is compressed. If it is referenced, Mac OS X can decompress a lot faster than to a new reading of the disc.

    The important point to look at the activity monitor is graphics memory. If it is not green, you may have to look more carefully at how you use your Mac and its RAM. The telltale signs that you need more are using PageOuts or Swap (but these counters start at zero at the start, so if you have worked for days, some will have invariably been used).

    Hi iambjan,

    I understand that your MacBook Pro has been lost by the intermediary of find my Mac mode. Fortunately, you can go to the off mode lost through the steps described below.

    You can disable the lost Mode by entering the password of the device, or by following the steps below. Alternatively, you can follow the steps below to change the details displayed on your lost device.

    Note: If your credit cards and debit to pay Apple have been suspended because you put your iPhone in lost Mode, when you disable lost Mode and reconnect to iCloud, you can continue using your cards.

    1. Go to find my iPhone on iCloud.com.

      If you don't find my iPhone on iCloud.com, your account has fair access to the web features only iCloud. To access find my iPhone and other iCloud features, set up on your device iOS or Mac iCloud.

    2. Click on all devices, and then select the device that is lost.

    3. Click on lost Mode, then change the information or lost the stop Mode.

    If you cannot use lost fashion as find my iPhone is not configured on your lost device, see the article by Apple Support If your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch is lost or stolen.

  • The 15 "Macbook always uses the asymmetric blades?

    I just bought a mid-2015 MacBook Pro 15.4 with a 2.5 Ghz with 512 GB i7 and the AMD Radeon R9 M370. I do a lot of repairs on computers and portable computers desktop apple and the retina, not those that are extensible easierly older. Ive been working only on 1, 15 inch Macbook. I know that the blades are placed asymmetrically on the older models, but are they still asymmetrically laced on mid 2015 those? (Apple does that the 2015 middle there is no late 2015 or early 2016 currently as of 08/03/2016) fans seemed strong in the wind noise, when I export video that is better than my old laptop that makes a whining noise. Then I opened the computer and looks like they have redesigned the fans. the last of them, that I worked on was a 2013 environment that had fans like that.

    I was told that they have been placed asymmetrically and told by apple. I never listened to the fans at the time that I worked on, but a new always uses the asymmetric blades and what is the difference? Also, fans of left turn to 6150 against the right to the 5700 because of the GPU on the left side of the radiator? If anyone has the two could you tell me who is the strongest?

    Here is the new fan who is in my Macbook.

  • Why can't I access a book that I just bought my iPhone using iBooks on my MacBook Pro using iBooks?

    Why can't I access a book that I just bought my iPhone using iBooks on my MacBook Pro using iBooks?

    Perhaps one of the main reasons is that the Apple ID, I used on my iPhone is different from the AppleID that I use on my MacBook Pro.

    But when I went to add that Apple ID for my 'family' I get the message that the 2nd "" Apple ID is already part of the family.

    Any ideas how to make this happen?

    You need to get them on the same Apple ID choose one registered with the family and change it on the computer or device that has different ID.

  • recently to message this application memory is exhausted when I use the same applications as always before

    iMac running OS 10.9.5, suddenly getting alerts that my application memory is running out / has run out; I use the same applications that I used throughout and never had these alerts. I close all except an application but still get the message. This just started happening.

    HI there are Selia,

    Looks like you get this error message concerning the exhaustion of the memory of the application no matter how little you actually run. I would like to start by resetting your PRAM first:

    OS X El Capitan: reset PRAM your computer

    https://support.Apple.com/kb/PH21876?locale=en_US

    1. Choose the Apple menu > shut down.

    2. Look for the following keys on the keyboard: Option, command, P and r. you need to hold these keys down simultaneously in step 4.

    3. Turn on your Mac.

    4. Immediately press on and hold down the command-Option-r-P. You must press these keys until the black screen with the Apple logo to appear.

      Continue to hold the keys down until you restart your Mac, and you hear the tone of starting for the second time.

    5. Release the keys.

    After resetting the PRAM on your computer, you may need to update your speaker volume, screen resolution and startup disk preferences.

    Then test the question a bit. If it persists, I would then start mode safe so that the system can check for disk errors and clear a few caches of system level.
