Get Rid of Manuals and Read Me Files

Many applications come with Read Me and manual files that get installed by default. Most applications (and Mac OS X itself) place documentation files in the /Library/Documentation folder at the root level of your hard drive.

Using Spotlight to search for either Read Me or all PDF files can also help you locate manuals and guide files stored in other locations. Many of these files you may never have even looked at (and you probably don’t need). In the case of PDF manuals, these files can actually be quite large, so removing them can free up a sizable amount of space.
