My iMac's 250GB HD is practically full

Wed Jul 09, 2008 11:48 pm

Is there a widget/application that will help me easily locate the files/folders that is using up my space? O/S is 10.4.11

Know anything about WhatSize 4.1.1?

In addition, maybe you need a bigger external hard drive for all those data files you do not access all that often.

That's ultimately the plan but for the time being I opted to remove the family movies/pictures that I never got around to burning to DVD. I now have about 170 GB free space.
