    Simple question, I did a archive and install of Leopard after getting BSOD on upgrade (thank you to all who posted advice) anyway I have located the Previous system folder and noticed that it was 12GB, I have a 80GB PowerBook that is fast running out of space, so my question is simple, now that Leopard is running and I know that all my photos, music and docs are ok can I delete that folder and reclaim some space or will I be deleating important setting and stuff.
    Thank you.

    I'd wait until you need the space unless you have a full BU prior to installing Leopard, then go ahead. If after a week of regular use you aren't missing anything, you are in good shape. BTW, keep a BU offsite in case of accidents. I'm paranoid about losing stuff.

    Ok, so if I backup the folder to my external drive I can then delete it on my laptop.
