    I have imac G4 with 75 GB and have no disk space left. Before I upgrade hard disk space I would like to eliminate all applications I don't use, duplicate documents, etc. Any tips on how to do this. Is there a program that makes tis easy to do.

    Just click and drag the applications in your applications folder into the trash icon in your dock.

    If you haven't done so already, use Monolingual to remove unnecesary language resources. It's saved me around 1GB of HD space per computer in the past.

    You can also dump the unused printer drivers with Printer Setup Repair. That'll save you another gig or more.

    Thanks everyone. After listing and sorting by size I found my itunes and iphoto libraries were duplicated. Eliminating tunes was easy (song titles made easy to identify duplicates). Eliminating photos appears to be much harder. Some seem to be organized by year and others by numbers. Is ther a simple way to identify duplicates.
