Question about Apple Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger for Mac
I want to know how to free up space. My neighbour mentioned "defragging". What is this and how do you do it? I have an external hard drive to which I have started transferring files and then deleting original files. My internal cd burner seems to have had it so I can't burn files to make copies. I would really appreciate some help here...
De-fragmentation does nothing to free up space. It only moves files that have been fragmented across scattered sectors into a file running across contiguous sectors. This speeds up disk read operations and is less stress/wear on the hard drive. To free up space... continue what you're doing. Move all non-essential files to an external drive and uninstall any programs that you don't really need.
If this answers your question and provides a solution to your problem then please take a moment to rate this post. - Thanks.

You can indeed De-Frag the hard drive on any Mac, it however is not build into the OS and requires a problem. The one I use is TechTool Pro.

I would download and run the registry
utility from iobit.com
It is freeware and works then run CHKDSK/F.
Within iobits programme are useful utilities that empty the temporary directories and can remove unwanted old files.
Hope that helps.
