Half my hard drive gone to the OP?

Recommended Posts

Hey, i resently reinstalled Mac Os X but like when i first got it i found that i only had around 33GB of memory left on my hard drive from a 60GB hard drive, ??? Shouldn't there be a lot more room?

Theres some things that take alot of room with a default install of the OS.

Languages you may not even speak, Printer drivers you'll never use, Garageband loops, iDVD themes, Applications you may not ever use (like the Quicken trial, Microsoft Office Trial, iWork trial).

 

Whenever your installing, you can hit the Customize button to deselect languages you dont need, printer drivers you may never need and could always install later, applications you dont need.

It shouldn't take up 30 gigs... My HD is 60 gigs and I had more than 30 when I first booted. Delete all of the printer drivers you don't want to use. Sure it's nice having them there, just incase, but you can always redownload them or reinsstall off of the disk if you need one back.
