    Unhappy system folder/library folder
    OK...i've been cleaning out my macbook, and i just realized that (in finder, in the hard drive) i have the library folder, then i have the system folder WITH another library folder in it that takes up 1.43 gb (!). is that second "library" folder delete-able? or should i keep it? i wasnt sure if both library folders are the same or not.

    There are three library folders: your own user's library, the drive's library and the system's library, and there's a pathway convention signifying which is which, for two of them, anyway.

    If the pathway starts with a tilde, it signifies the user's library:

    ~/Library/Fonts/Egregious Super Condensed Extra Light.

    The drive's library would be:

    /Library/Fonts/Egregious Super Condensed Extra Light.

    The system library generally is off-limits.
