Getting rid of System 9
- Member Since
- Jan 05, 2010
I have an 800 MHZ Power PC G4 that came with both System 9 and 10. I switched to 10 and have upgraded to 10.4.11 quite awhile ago but OS 9 and all of the appropriate programs are still on my hard drive.
Recently my Mac has slowed down in just about every action. I have tried a number of "quick fixes" that have been recommended to me and there hasn't been any improvement that I can see.
My question is, would getting rid of OS 9 help my situation. And if so how would I go about that without screwing something else up. Please bare in mind that I have been a MAC user since the 1984 but I am far from a techie.

Drag the OS9 system folder to the trash and empty it. It's that simple.
Probably won't change anything unless your HDD has less that 1Gb of space on it.
