hi mac peeps!! im a newbie, but an apple guy for years... I'm also a dumbie when it comes to the architecture of how the 'puter functions.... that being said....
my drive is almost full (7gs left!) i do have an external drive using time machine and it has been active for months now... (like the George Foreman grill, i set it and forgot it!) my question is: how do i create internal drive space properly... I'm worried that nothing will work right or something dreadful.... any insight will be surely appreciated!!! rock on!!!
I'm using a 2009 mini 2.26GHz Intel Core 2 Duo; 4G RAM; OSX10.9.5 and Time Machine with an external 1TB external Western Digital 'my passport' that was ready to run Time Machine
