My Macs memory is maxed out due to "other". I've checked downloads and my microsoft office package is using up 1GB of memory in "downloads" but is also listed in "applications". Can I safely delete the package from "downloads" or will that delete everything? I've got 49GB worth of stuff in "other" but can't think of what it can be. I don't have very many documents saved on here.

Thanks

If this helps, you can use OmniDiskSweeper to very quickly identify what's taking up the most room on your Mac. It's a very simple interface indeed. Please do be wary of what you'll be deleting however, feel free to ask if there's anything you're unsure of.

I haven't used that one but I've been pretty satisfied with the shareware program "Disk Inventory X."
