Hey John and Dave.

I have a question which I guess is almost the same as Deborah’s.
My iMac has a 300GB HDD and running Tiger, with only 110 GB left. A lot of space is being used up because I have a lot of high definition videos on there. My computer has been getting slower and I added another 1GB of RAM to the 2GB that was already in there, thinking it would make the computer a little bit faster. However, I am still not happy. I tried monolingual too free up some space and that worked well. Now, I have a 500GB Time Capsule which I want to back up all my data to. However, I have two issues over this. One is: Will it free up space on my iMac’s HDD. (I dont really know this because Im only 13) and my second question is: what good program to back up all my stuff to the Time Capsule.
Any help would be much appreciated.
