    Double HD?

    I checked my HD to see how much space was left on a 160G harddrive that came in the emac. it said I only had about 8 gigs left, that seems like very little.

    I have a few thousand pictures and about 60 albums of music, so it sems strange it is so full, but maybe not.

    So I was thinking about deleting stuff.

    I was looking thorough folder of pictures and found a Hard Drive icon and when I opened it, it seems to have everything my hard drive has.

    Could have I duplicated the HD and some how got it in a folder of pictures of a car I was selling?

    So I moved it into the HD icon itself and it is the same, it appears to be a duplicate.

    How do I determine it can be trashed?

    Any help would be great.

    If it's an alias, a duplicate, it will have a little arrow in the bottom corner normally. It's safe to trash it if so. If it hasn't then you have other issues.
    Quite easily done this, but be careful.

    I trashed it, thanks.

    However it did not free up much space. I was hoping it had double everything and I would not have to deal with deleting things.

    but that is the next thread.

    A few thousand pictures and 60 albums would sure fill it and you do need 15&#37; free space for the eMac to work at iorts maximum. Do not be surpised if you get slowdowns, spinning wheels etc etc and see your other thread.
