    Can I install Sierra on Mac 10.7.5?
    « on: April 19, 2017, 09:58:17 PM »
    I've got a Macbook Air 2011 13" Mac OS X 10.7.5, 1.7GHz Intel Core i5, 4GB 1333MHz DDR3. I tried to install Sierra but I don't think I have enough space. Can I install Sierra?

    How much free space do you have left?

        You might want to export some of that stuff to an external to free up available space... Sierra claims it needs 8 GB. External Hard Drives are cheap these days. A 1TB external you can find around $50-60

        macOS Sierra requires at least 2GB of RAM and 8GB of storage space and will run on:

            iMac: Late 2009 or newer.
            MacBook and MacBook Retina: Late 2009 or newer.
            MacBook Pro: Mid 2010 or newer.
            MacBook Air: Late 2010 or newer.
            Mac Mini: Mid 2010 or newer.
            Mac Pro: Mid 2010 or newer.

          I started with this http://www.imore.com/how-find-and-remove-files-other-category-os-x and then there was enough space.  Thanks for your help!
