    I was just wondering why there are so many ".caf" files in the "all documents" section of my new MBP and if I should just ignore them if they are part of something else like GarageBand. Thanks.

    "All Documents"? :confused:

    .caf is an audio format, but I don't really know where you're looking.

    ah... I was looking under the "search for" menu, they turned out to be loop files for GarageBand.

    Ah yeah. I never use Spotlight and was in fact quite miffed to discover that the search for menu couldn't be disabled or removed altogether, so I leave it collapsed and quite forgot it was there.

    Thanx. So what would happen if I just removed them all? I have removed my entire Garage Band as it's something I'll never use, so what about these .caf files? Do I need them for anything else.. don't want to trash them and mess up my system, but I also don't want them on there if they are simply using up space.
