    Hey all,

    This Wednesday is my birthday and my father bought me Leopard. So, I keep hearing different methods on Leopard. Some people say to just Upgrade and install. Others are saying that an Archive and install is good, but finally, I hear that a clean erase of the hard drive is the best way to go!

    So, please help! Which one should I do? If you have a question about my Mac, look at my sig por favor.

    Thanks!!!

    Depends on how much Data you have,if you have stuff backed up,id say go for a
    erase & install as well as a custom install to slim down the OS ( clear out the cobwebs and start afresh )

    I would do an Erase and Install making sure that all of your data is backed up. I would also do a custom install and remove the extra languages and printer drivers that you don't need. That alone will free up a few extra gigabytes from the installation.

    Archive and install is the easiest IMHO, you end up not having to mess with settings like network, movies, itunes database, photos etc.
