    Default free up alot of space..
    i have a lot of junk on my computer, and it takes up a lot of space. every so often i clean up and delete some old things. i was goin through things when i found this: CDocuments and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Apple Computer\Installer Cache
    i found over a gig of old itunes/safari/quicktime installers!
    it was over half of what was in application data.
    just thought id share if people need to free some space.(:

    You can also use this: Disk Inventory X. It sorts all the data on your hard drive from biggest to smallest, so you know exactly where your disk space is taken up. The first time I ran this, I found over 6 Gigs of files I didn't need!

    Perfect timing. I was running out of space and found out through this that I had a 10 gig console.log

    "Whatsize" works a lot better than diskinventoryX because it gives you a finder style layout with full info.
