View Full Version : removing Printer Drivers resulted in less free disk space

12-30-2007, 05:33 PM
To free up space, I ran "sudo rm -rf /Library/Printers" and instead my HDD's free space decreased by 3.18 GB. Does anyone have an explanation for this or an explanation to how to properly remove the printer drivers?

This might be a symptom of filesystem corruption.
You should do "Repair Disk" (different from "Repair Disk Permissions"!) in Disk Utility when booted from the Install CD/DVD. I.e. you restart from the Install CD/DVD, then run the version of Disk Utility that is available from one of the menus there.
See this Apple doc:
