    Being the cheap student I am, i had to select the 80 gb hd with my mbp. Now with windows on here too, I left with a measly 10 gb left on my osx partition. Are there any huge files or things i could turn off or delete to free more space in OS X?( for example in windows if you turn off system restore you get a few gigs back)... thanks!

    Type in "Delocalizer" into google and download it. I freed up almost 2 gigs.

    If your MBP has the factory install, you could delete things like the Garageband libraries, languages, or printer drivers. Those combined will save close to 5 GB.

    What are garage band libraries? Will it change the program in anyway the would neg affect my recording guitar tracks?

    Thanks for the delocalizer, saved 3 gigs!

    i wouldnt recommend deleting garageband folders/files if you have ever used GB before.
