    Stop Saving Files, Please!
    How do I get my Mac to stop saving everything. Every open doc, every piece of opened email, file upon rank of file.

    How do I stop my puter from doing that?

    Thanks.

    Is your Mac saving files to a specific directory? Which applications is it doing this in? Is it every application? What version of OS X are you using?

    Applications should not be saving files randomly or consistently without your permission. The only exception to this is the auto-save feature of some apps.

    10.6.7; saves to /Download directory; appears to save everything (from all apps)

    Thanks.
