    Mostly stay away from /Library & /System Folder at Root of the drive, look in you Home folder, likely Documents & Downloads folder, post the full names if in doubt, but look for GB+ size files.


    Still can't figure out this Tomcat thing... open System Preferences>Sharing, is Personal Web Sharing enabled???

    perhaps I can reset the iBook to factory settings?  Would this work? Can I do that and if so how? Would this erase all my personal settings/personal details/everything I would rather no one could access if I  scrapped the machine?

    Hi Caroline, 2 ways to go...


      1. Insert the Mac OS X Install disc that came with your computer, then restart the computer while holding the C key.

       2. When your computer finishes starting up from the disc, choose Disk Utility from the Installer menu. (In Mac OS X 10.4 or later, you must select your language first.)

          *Important: Do not click Continue in the first screen of the Installer. If you do, you must restart from the disc again to access Disk Utility.*

       3. Click the Erase tab.

       4. Click the disclosure triangle to the left of the hard drive icon to display the names of your hard disk volumes and partitions.

       5. Select your Mac OS X volume.

       6. Highlight the drive, select Partition Tab, then Format type... MacOS Extended Journalled, select the Security Options button, choose Zero Out Data, Erase... after completion do a new install.





    Open System Preferences>Accounts, unlock the lock, click on the little plus icon, make a new admin account, log out & into the new account.

    In the same pref pane highlight your old account, click the little minus icon, then use Disk Utility to Secure Erase Free Space.

    I think there's two places in your Profile to do that... & did you save your prefs after changibg them?

    Let's see...


    In your Profile there's Edit Preferences & Manage eMail Notifications, funny thing, using the 1st one has another tab called Email Notifications Preferences.


    Have you tried both?
