My computer keeps telling me that my drive is full, but I haven't installed anything lately. How do I fix this?

Look through the recommendations to reduce your clutter. You can upload documents to iCloud or Google Drive (recommended), Optimize iTunes storage, Empty your trash bin automatically, or delete files from your computer.
Troubleshooting Hard Drive Issues
If your hard drive is not full, then it may be possible that your hard drive is going bad, or that your OS is corrupted. In this case (or if the previous suggestions do not work), it is highly recommended that you contact the Support Central. It is also possible that you may need to change your partition sizes.
