    Hello everybody i was just wondering if it was possible to save some space without rebooting the whole system...

    I heard there were some pinter drives that were useless and took 3.2 GB ! How do you delete them ? Are they useful


    > How do we set up a printer wirelessy for a mac? This is my first mac and got my MBA yesterday and am very pleased with it... Still discovering it a lot <D

    If you are only using a few languages or one then monolingual can remove all the other applications language files. :)

    Yes, its going to erase everything, which is why in the thread it says its best to do before you do anything else. You can save some space by using monolingual, you can uninstall things such as garage band, iweb, etc if you don't use them, and you might be able to remove all those printer drivers, I'm not sure.

    The best thing to do would be to back your stuff up and do a fresh install of the OS per the sticky, but if that isn't an option you can try manually removing the other stuff, it will just be a big pain.
