    Reclaim space from failed jam pack installation
    Hi Guys,

    I'm new to Macs and was trying to install a Jam Pack just now, but halfway through the first disc I realized it probably wasn't what I was looking for (thought it was a violin tutorial). I didn't cancel the installation, but at the end, it mentioned something about some kind of error (forgot to screenshot ).

    Anyways, I can only assume it was a botched install of some sort, I don't see anything new on garageband. That being said, i just want to make sure that it's off my system, as the installer said it would take up 5GB of space.

    How would I check if it's taking up space on the hdd? Not too familiar with the Mac filesystem yet.

    Thanks a lot in advance!

    The first idea that comes to mind is to re-install the Jam Pack, then delete it from garage band to get the space back. As the re-install will over write the partially install mess you did before.

    And for it taking up space on your hard drive I'd look at this Application.
    Disk Inventory X
    It just is a visual representation of the stuff on your Hard Drive. And you can see what stuff is clogging it up.

    Deleting the partially installed jampack - well I found this link:
    That might be of use to you.

    Thanks for the link to the post, sorry didn't manage to find it before.

    Perhaps I'll try reinstalling the jam pack again and see if I can remove it after. Just worried that if 1 disc takes up 5GB, then the 2nd disc might take up another 5GB that I don't know how to remove, haha.

    Will try and post feedback.
