I just found a bunch of files that could be safely deleted. This is the graphic of my disk usage pattern. I reclaimed up over 7GB of disk space – a lot of it in caches, old mailboxes that I had moved, and more. The WhatSize application was especially helpful, since it basically gives you exactly what you want – a sorted list of each folder on your hard drive, sorted by size of the contents, and lets you drill down and see exactly which file(s) are taking up so much space on your system. Highly recommended!
One response to “I just recovered over 7GB of disk space on my Powerbook G4 using these tips…”
It seems that you are promoting a program that sells for $20.
I haven't tried "WHATSIZE" but it looks like the free software that I've been using for years from here: http://www.Win.tue.nl/sequoiaview
This program was developed & is offered free by the University of Eindhoven in the Netherlands.
