Question about Apple Power Mac G5 Desktop
After i use it for few month since i purchased, it starts so slow. is it because i have too many files on desktop?
Yes, that is a major factor. Because the files arent actually kept on the desktop, so when you boot it, the machine has to" remember" where that content is actually stored. You should also defrag the hard drive with DISK UTILTIY.
MAIN DRIVE/APPLICATIONS/UTILITIES/DISK UTILITY
You can also check the space left on the drive. It should state at the bottom of the window when that volume is selected. Or you can also click on it once and hit the apple and "I" key..
APPLE+ I also know as "get info" from the top file menu. If you do a considerable amount of downloading, or if you have a massive itunes folder and you are saving that to your internal drive and not an external, you operating system has to weed through all that information. If youre getting spinning beach balll as well, I'd recommend install more RAM modules.
Hope this helps, keep me posted.
