    HUGE Apllication support folder
    Hey again,

    I was just wandering through my system files, and I did a get info on my library folder. It was 17 gigs. I thought that was interesting, so I went to application support, and did a get info, and it was 16 GIGS! Thats a lot of stuff! Can I delete folders in the application support for apps I deleted?
    ... If one falls flat on their face, at least they were moving in the right direction...

    Basically yes. But be careful..... For example: You may find a folder in Application Support named "Mozilla". You delete it because you deleted FireFox and think that you no longer need that folder. However, if you're running Thunderbird as your mail and news client, you just deleted its data base and settings.

    See what I mean?
