Clean up Hard-Drive, free disk space
Although I have had my macbook for almost a year and a few years ago I had an old ibook (remember those? haha) I still, unfortunately consider myself a mac newbie. I love my mac, I would never return to a PC with windows, but theres one thing I miss from my windows days. Disk Cleanup.
I have a macbook with an 80 gig hard drive, and I have filled it up. I have an external hard drive which I use, but I can't bring it everywhere I go, and as I currently only have about 7 gig left on my internal hard drive, I'd like to free up space. I'm 90% sure I have at least 10 gig worth of useless junk (old files, temporary files etc.) on my computer, but I cant figure out where and what to delete. Is there any way to do a disk clean up to free up some space?

You'll be surprised how much is stored in the Caches folder under your library folder...i once cleared over a gig of stuff out of there. Also when you delete applications out of the applications folder some of their "support files" stay behind on your computer and continue taking up space. The "application support" folder is under the library as well and you can go and delete stuff from within there.

Are there any problems associated with removing languages. I thought I read somewhere this could happen. MC
