I recently had to re-install Snow leopard on my MacBook Pro, and therefore had to re-install CS4 and Lightroom etc.. When I installed CS4, I did the custom install so that I wouldn't waste space with things I wouldn't use. Amongst these things are Bridge , Encore and After Effects. Interestingly though, I didn't want to install Bridge, but had no choice.

As for the other things, I didn't install them, but they still take up space on my HD. (Much like the first four largest things on that list such as AVi, Mpg etc.. they're containers you see in the screenshot below)

So my question then is, may I delete these folders from the applications folder with no adverse side effects ? (to Photoshop or Illustrator that is) And what about Bridge ? This app is actually installed, but I don't want to use it. Will anything happen with Illustrator or PS if I get rid of it ?

I understand that some applications need extensions of other apps in order to utilize certain plugins and such, so thought this was a fair question.

Thanks !

Doug
