I like to keep my HDD as clean and free of clutter as possible. Whilst looking for rubbish whilst in Finder/search for and then you have your "Today, Yesterday, Past weeks history and so-on - If I delete the contents of one of these folders, will that also delete the contents from my HDD?


Thanks in advance.

Yes it will!
They are smart folders showing actual content of your hard drive.
If you wish, you can drag them out of the side bar, or go to finder system preferences and uncheck the Smart folders you wish to remove!

Many thanks 6string. Phew - my fingers were hovering on the delete button just before I thought I'd better find out out for sure.

That's ok, I too have fingers constantly hovering over the delete button for the same reason....
Because I know I can't resist, I keep constant backups, as well as install disc, bootable install disc on external hard drive, as well as bootable copy of my system on an external backup at the ready!
Deleting to clear up space, can be addictive
In all honesty, I should get a bigger hard drive for rehab, and it sounds like you may also want to consider that option
