Entourage taking over my harddrive

Published by at 7:32 am under OS X / Apple OS

I noticed that I had almost no space left on my MacBook and I couldn’t see a good reason why I would have so little space left. In Windows I used an excellent application called WinDirStat to find out what was wasting space on my harddrive, and I was glad to see that there’s a similar app for OS X called Disk Inventory X. Both of these free and excellent applicationsĀ  shows you a graphical tree map that makes it easy to see what is using up your disk space. In my case it turned out to be Entourage which due to frequent crashes had led to multiple copies of the Entourage database. I deleted several copies of the database and recovered a lot of space.
