I recently bought a used ibook from the internet. I want to switch to that from my pc, so I need some more storage space on the mac since there are a few programs that the person I bought it from left on there. I tried archiving this one software since I know I will rarely if ever use it. I successfully archived it and saw the program with the ending .zip, and then I deleted the real software. I just dragged it from the applications folder into the trash. I then emptied the trash. I have my hard drive labeled with how much space is used, and it still had the same amount. The same thing happened when I deleted the entire itunes library. I expected some space to clear up, however after I dragged all the songs directly from the itunes library into the trash, and then emptied the trash, it still reads the same amount is being used. It seems that no space has cleared up. It does however read when I use space. When I downloaded my photos into iphoto, it in turn used up a lot of space, and then it read in my hard drive that more space is being used. I want to put all my photos from my pc into the mac, but I would like to clear up the space with these programs that I don't use, etc. Please, any help on how I can truly delete these files so it will clear up more space would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!!!!
