    I recently installed a SSD next to my HDD. The SSD replaced the SuperDrive.
    Now it isn't a very large SSD so I'm keeping it as minimal as possible qua data.

    So after searching for large files, I've came across the sleepimage.
    I noticed that both my SSD and HDD have a sleepimage.

    My question is, can I delete the one on my SSD and only use the one from my HDD?

    To the best of my knowledge, the sleepimage gets rewritten on a regular basis. There doesn't seem to be any harm in deleting it; it will simply restore itself the next time you sleep. This may help:

    I think only one of the files are "active". U usually only have one, havent really heard of onyone having two :S Porb just check which file was updated last.

    Anyways, if you want to move you file to either, ex to your HDD to save space on the ssd, just use the terminal an type " sudo pmset -a hibernatefile /Volumes/OtherVolume/sleepimage "
