Hi all, I am trying to reclaim disk space off of an iMac 27 inch running El Capitan. My daughter finished college
got a job and moved out. I have been sharing the computer with her, but the 320 mg hard drive only has
25 mgs free. So I would like to back up her data up to Time Machine and remove here from the computer. Can
I than go back at some time and recover her to that machine or an other?
Thanks for the help.

Hello,

Yes, that should work. You could also delete her user, and choose to keep the home folder. Once that is done, then drag it to en external disk for storage and delete it from the internal.
