Hi, Heidi. If you have no applications that you want to run in Classic mode in OS X, and you have no need to start your computer up in OS 9 instead of OS X from time to time, then yes, you can trash the System Folder and the Applications (OS 9) folder. Do so by opening each of those folders, selecting all of its contents, and dragging them to the Trash. Empty the Trash, then drag the two empty folders into it and empty it again.
If you can't empty the trash at one or both of these stages, restart the computer and then empty the Trash.
Note that if you have any applications that you run in Classic mode, or if you ever want to start up in OS 9 instead of OS X, you won't be able to do so after disposing of OS 9.
The largest amount of disk space you can likely expect to recover by trashing these folders and their contents is probably only about 1GB, and it may be much less than that if you don't have many large OS 9 applications. That won't be enough to make much of a difference to OS X, which really wants at least 3GB of free space on any size hard drive, preferably 5GB, and more than that if your hard drive is larger than 50GB.
If you can't free up at least 2-3GB of space on your hard drive by deleting OS 9 and other little-used files, then you need a larger hard drive. And you need it right away: running with only 300MB of free space on a drive that contains OS X 10.3.9 is a recipe for serious trouble.

  3. Drag the application PLIST file, located in the Users/[User]/Library/Preferences folder, to Trash. Skip this step if the Adobe application doesn't include a PLIST file.

    • Users/[User]/Library/Application Support
    • Library/Application Support
