    Hey Guys,

    So, it dawned on me that I don't ever actually use Classic, and therefore it's just taking up room on my already cramped harddrive.

    How do I uninstall it? Do I just drag the System And OS 9 Applications folders to the Trash can?

    That'll do most of the job. I believe that there are a couple of hidden files too, but they use very little space.

    This is really the equivalent of scheduling surgery because you realized that you don't use your appendix. :eek:

    Haha, it's not that bad if you just copy & paste the right codes. :p

    I'd suggest burning the System Folder onto a CD before removing it. This is like keeping your appendix in jar just in case you decide later on that you really do need it.

    BTW, by removing Classic you lose access to all of the fonts you (may) have installed there.
