I've had my dual processor G5 for about two years. It's not full, yet, (still about 30GB left) but it's been running so slowly lately that I'm about to cry. Everything takes twice as long. It's been suggested to me that I "wipe the hard disk" or completely reformat everything. I'm not really super computer saavy so I'm wondering if that's the best idea, and if so, what's the best way to go about it without bringing my work to a screeching halt for a week. I'm currently doing a total back up of the entire hard drive and am thinking of just dumping the whole thing and dealing with the mess. Any useful suggestions would be appreciated. I have most of the install items I need for my software (I think!) but am wondering if there is something else I can do to just clear things out and make me go faster again. I've been having a lot of trouble with my Suitcase program lately (won't ever quit on shutdown) and I wonder if that's creating the problem. I've got lots of fonts turned on but not THAT many. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
