Hi everyone,

I read a thread on here a while ago talking about freeing up space (printer drivers, trial versions of pages etc...) but I cant find it, I wondered if anyone can either re-direct me to that thread, or suggest an app that is easy to use and that can do it.

I tried disk inventory X but I couldn't figure it out.
QUOTE Thanks

Also check out iPhoto diet. My wife's old macbook was full and it was because iPhoto keeps all originals and all modifications to all your pictures. That ended up taking like 10GB of extra space..
