Thread: hard drive space ?
06-03-2005, 07:20 PM #1hard drive space ?
Hi, long time listener, first time caller.
Anyway my question is about the space on my ibook. I have a few pictures (1.42 gigs) about 5 songs and less the half a gig of documents on my hard drive. Why do I have so little free space? I just installed tiger an hour ago. (Bought 3 ibooks two days before tiger was announced) Now I have less space. I left out the language files and I even uninstalled World Book. I have 12.98 gigs free. What the **** is taking up all the space. My XP labtop (use as desktop) has the same sized hard drive is loaded with music, pictures etc and is not even half full.
I don't really need the space, I have about 200 gigs of space on various computers on the network. But I was thinking of copying my ipod mini and adding more pictures to the ibook but that would eat up another 5 gigs of space. Is there away to free up space?

What size HD does it have?
My mini came with about 10gb worth of stuff installed from Apple, a lot was stuff I didn't need so I deleted it.

the ibook is advertised at 30g but list on the desktop as 27.82. When I got it, it had less than 16g free. Deleting world book and some other stuff I don't remember brought up to just shy of 17g
