It also doesn't really save that much disk space. I would bet it would only trim it by 3 gigs or so.

"only 3 gigs or so" ... Jeebus that makes me feel old ...

So using Cocktail is going to screw things up?


I use Onyx for maintenance/placebo.

If you don't watch what you're doing. Things like removing languages.

You can take this however you all want, I'm not a know it all though I act like one. Cocktail has a lot of buttons to click and stuff, but I never do any of that sh¡t as routine maintenance, only troubleshooting.

The other things it offers, meh. The OS takes care of itself. The only thing I may do every 6 months or so is clean my caches. I can't remember the last time I even did it.

It has some possibly handy, and some possibly dangerous stuff. In Interface for example, I've heard where showing invisible files then hiding doesn't alway hide them all again for instance. Also if one doesn't know what they're doing you should stay away from things like that.

That's all it is, a placebo, that can screw things up if you're not careful. laugh

Yeah, I only use it as a troubleshooting tool. I could schedule it... but for what? Hardly ever have issues with the OS.
OTOH... too late. I fired off Cocktail this morning to delete all those languages. Everything except English. I may have to reinstall the OS. We'll see. Live-n-Learn.

Yuppers, I remember the whopping 4 gig internal SCSI HD I got for my 7100 to replace the 250 M, close to $500.

And you're afraid of Terminal, you should be terrified of Cocktail then. laugh

Some apps rely on all languages. Worse case you just reinstall the OS, it won't change any data files.

How much disk space did it "recover"

I used to use Multilingual to get rid of unnecessary Package languages, but HD's are so large now, I don't bother. It did save a good 6+ GB's though.
