hi, my downloads folder is getting very large, my question is can i copy all the downloads to DVD and then clear the folder out by sending them to the trash

Mac Pro, Mac OS X (10.5.6)

    You can put its contents anywhere. There's no need to keep things in that folder. That said, I never put those things into a DVD. HD space is cheaper to use.

    I only keep a few selected files in case the installed app goes south. I see no reason to keep assorted .dmg's , zips, etc. of installed apps laying around and eating up space. ie: I trash excess.
