Here’s two today that cheered me up. I’m installing a lot of software for workshops that I’m going to in the next couple of weeks (causing a minor panic attack over my laptop possibly not running any of it – turns out to be false attack). I also installed a great little application to help me clean out my hard drive. Face it, 40 GB seemed like a generous amount in 2005 but somehow it ran out fast.
The first is from a visualization package that I’m using this weekend. I love it because – well, you can’t go wrong no matter what system you have! They accommodate just about everyone.
Second, there is the truly awesome license agreement for OmniDiskSweeper, which I also really recommend. It discovered that in my Volumes directory there were 3GB of total nonsense left behind by one of my external hard drives. I haven’t used that one in a year – so that’s how long this has been clogging up my computer! That explains a lot. I know 40GB isn’t much space, but given that I don’t store much of anything on this laptop except for text documents and applications (my music and photos are all on other drives), it was a little suspicious that I couldn’t delete enough things to get even more than 2GB free. Now I have 8GB, thanks to Omni. Now check out their call for feedback on the license agreement:
