Adobe CS users: Easily free up 5GB of disk space

Oct 31, 2007 - 2 Comments

If you’re a Mac user and you installed the Adobe CS suite for graphic work or web development, you probably aren’t too interested in Adobe SoundBooth, which is fine because you don’t have to install it. Well, I didn’t install Adobe SoundBooth and I discovered that Adobe still decided to install 5GB of SoundBooth bloated files into my home directories Library folder. I have no idea what the purpose of this stuff is, but if you don’t use SoundBooth (I don’t even know what SoundBooth is) you don’t need it, and 5GB is a lot of disk space for something I don’t use. So here’s how to get rid of it:

Free up 5GB of disk space by deleting Adobe CS bloat

Step 1) Navigate to /home/Library/Application Support/Adobe/SoundBooth/

Step 2) Delete anything inside the SoundBooth folder (only do this if you don’t use or need SoundBooth, obviously)

Step 3) Enjoy 5GB of extra disk space!

    Actually, this is only true if you installed the additional SoundBooth scores – otherwise only 92mb are used in said directory.
