How to recover disk space on Mac OS X 10.7 Lion?

Mac OS X v10.7 "Lion" was released on July 20, 2011. It includes support for the Mac App Store, and brings many other developments made in Apple's iOS, such as an easily-navigable display of installed applications (Launchpad) and (a greater use of) multi-touch gestures, to the Mac. This release removed Rosetta, making it incapable of running PowerPC applications.

Some tips for Mac hard drive cleanup

1. Go through your application folder, removing all unused applications.
2. Remove all localization files not used for your language, this can free up to 2GB of space.
3. Open iPhoto and delete photos you no longer need. iPhoto has its own application trash so remember to empty that.
4. Open iTunes and delete all of the music and podcasts you no longer need.
5. Go through your Documents, Movies, and Pictures folder, deleting any junk you no longer use.
6. Clear out old email messages in Mail or other email program.
7. Go to ~/Library/Caches/, and delete anything you see from applications you no longer have installed. Repeat the process in ~/Library/Preferences/.
8. Go to ~/Library/Safari/, and delete the "Icons" folder.
9. If you don't need it, remove the Xcode installer, located in /Applications/Installers/.
10. Remove unnecessary iChat icons from ~/Pictures/iChat Icons/.

Once you have done everything on the list, you should have a nice, clean hard drive, with plenty of free space. However, it is time-consuming job and hard to operate by yourself. With the help of Mac cleanup software, everything is easy.
