Jim,

I'm not exactly sure what you're asking. What do you mean by "start up area"? If you mean your user library, then you should look as to what is taking up all the space that you may no longer need. You could have large documents or Application Support items that may be hogging up space. You can run programs like WhatSize or Xslimmer that may help in locating the hogs. Xslimmer will also take out the foreign language settings files if you don't want those, but they really don't take a lot of room. Other things that may be hogging space are template files like those associated with GarageBand. Also check to see if you really need all the fonts you have loaded or if there are duplicate fonts in different locations on your disk. FontBook can help locating those.

Thanks for the info i have been off on other things

I have had this "space" problem when trying to up date OS and Iphone (although it sounds like not updating the IPHONE is a good thing till they have fixes for power drain)
