Running out of space

Since I installed Leopard, it wants to download alot. I turned it off for a while but the upgrade seemed to work better. Now I am running out of space. How do I erase what is on there and reload my system for a bootable backup? I know that my Maxtor has orginal, Tiger and Leopard on the disk, lots of space. Please advise how I can reconfigure my disk, thanks. Ken

C drive has almost no memory left but there is nothing in it exept program files!?

Download and install CCleaner, this will identify and remove files that buildup over time that you do not need. I suggest running this about once a week to help keep your computer clean and then defrag it at least monthly to improve performance. If you are still running out of space then you will need to upgrade to a larger hard drive. You can download CCleaner from

Upgrade Possible?

Hey Al,
The internal Drive is a standard 3.5 inch IDE 7200RPM unit. you can indeed upgrade this to a 1TB drive as long as it's IDE wether 2.5 or 3.5. Luckily when Lacie was originally offering these drives you could get these in 1TB, so that won't be an issue.

My Book, Need upgrade to make it compatible with Mac Leopard OS X. Article #1716.

1) Go to 2) Click Downloads 3) Select MyBook, then your MyBook model (I selected MyBook Home, as it was appropriate to my hardware) 4) Download and install the WD Drive Manager (Mac)
Note that this software only updates the utilities that control the power button, drive lights, and capacity gauge. If the drive is otherwise not functioning properly, you'll probably need to seek alternate support: the hardware itself functions just fine for me as an external drive without installing any additional software or drivers.
