Advice needed about my G4.
We bought it second hand. It had previously been used to store mainly music…hmm…lots of duplicates of things in MP3 and M4A formats. I’ve cleaned out all the stuff I didn’t want and deleted multiple copies of programs. don’t know what the previous owner was thinking, but there was a ton of rubbish on the hard disc. I reclaimed 8GB of a 30 GB drive!
Anyway, my question…
When I look at the hard drive I have a folder called “Previous System”. Contained in that folder are duplicates of many of the programs I’m using, for example DVD player, Address book etc. Can I remove this “Previous System” folder without losing any of the programs I need?
There are also some locked files, which obviously I can’t open. so it would be good to get rid of them…if of course they aren’t vital.
I have tried a few experiments, like deleting empty folders, but want advice before I possibly remove vital applications.
