    If i go to Mac HD>Library>Printer> there are drivers totalling 1.36GB.

    I was wondering whether this is something left over from Leopard or is it something thats been installed by Snow Leopard?

    I have drivers for Brother, Canon, Epson, HP, Lexmark, PPDs & Samsung residing there. I dont remember what i did on the SL upgrade but i dont remember selecting these to be installed - but maybe i did?

    I have a Canon printer and that works but how and where the drivers are allocated i dont know so dont want to delete something thats needed.

    Although in my >MacHD>User>Library>Printer there are two .app files that i guess are setup info - one for usb connection & one for wireless connection.

    If anyone can clear this up it would be great. Thanks.
