Default Os X 10.4.10 maintenance?

I've been running OSX 0.4.10 for about a year and a half with PT 7.3. I record to an external HD, but have moved large sessions and sample libraries back and forth. I'm noticing the system slowing down alot. I want to make sure everything is up to speed for a large live session coming up. any ideas? I get conflicting info when I look into defrag/optimize. Just want to make sure I'm in good shape for a live recording.


System Details
Mac Mini Core 2 duo, 2gb Ram> Glyph 250gb firewire HD
003 Rack, Focusrite Octopre>OSx 10.4.10, Pro Tools LE 7.3

SOS has some useful Mac 'housekeeping' tips. check out this;


Another factor which can influence audio performance is how full the HD is. Opinions vary but I've read that anything less than 25% spare capacity can be problematical.
