Got past the grey screen and logged in. What do I do to empty space?
Hi again!

Can you tell me what version of OS X you are currently running?

Click the Apple Logo in the menubar at the top of the screen

Select "About This Mac"

In the window that opens, look for the "Version" information. Please let me know what it says.

Thanks,
John

Okay, sadly that wont help us narrow it down much.

Do you store large amounts of any type of file?

Customer: replied 3 years ago.
I will go through and get rid of any files I do not need and move to external drive. At least I now know where to find things. Thanks again.
You are very welcome, Ray.

Generally you can move/delete any personal data without harm. However, do not remove any Applications that shipped with your Mac or items in any of the "Library" or "System" folders that you see.

Other than that, you should be safe.
