    How do I find out what is taking up so much space?
    I have a Powerbook 667 with 512 RAM and 30 Gigs ROM.

    I have had this thing for years and I am trying to figure out what could be taking up 16 Gigs of space.

    I have moved all movies and music to an external hard drive, so I know that is isn't media. And I deleted everything in my download file as well.

    Is there any way to see what could possibly be taking up so much space? Is there anything that I can run to clean out old iPod updaters and worthless things like that?

    Most of my files are Word, Excel and some pictures, but nothing huge... not 16G worth.

    Thanks,
    J

    what operating system are you running on it? If you've got OS X on it, this program will work...

    Bingo!! I found some hidden folder in Limewire with like 5.5 Gigs of downloads and "incomplete" files...

    I do have something like 1.57 Gigs of stuff in my "Printers" file.. what is that all about?

    Try the ever popular Delocalizer to take out all the languages you don't use. Find it on Macupdate.com!
    I try to Command+Shift+/ when I can.
