Hi,

I use an Intel Mini running Snow Leopard. I would like to know how to empty the cache of the Finder. Can it be done?

Could you kindly give me more detailed instructions? The Library folder contains many files. Which ones should I delete? cache? cookies? Preferences?

I suggest you use an application such as Onyx to clear caches and such, its best not to just manually jump in if your not sure what your doing.

Onyx is great. Next in line would probably be CCleaner or Cocktail for doing cleanup and maintenance. Better than jumping in yourself like Cypher suggested.
