Dear Experts,

I got a little question I guess its easy for you to answer. I have a MacBook 17 (old one) with MacOSX 10.11 on it. And since the latest update they renamed iPhoto to Photos. So in my Pictures I do have now a iPhotos Library with 154GB (which has been untouch since the update) and I got a Photos Library with 204GB (which has been active all the time and I guess also because of that grown).

Can I delete the iPhoto library to get more space? Or do I need them both? Is there a way to check?

edit:// I attached the picture of both libraries next to each other

Thanks for your help

Kind Regards,
Yves

If you've migrated the iPhoto Library to Photos back when Apple forced the update, then you should be able to delete the iPhoto Library without issue.  If you're worried, you can always copy it offline first and keep it for any old systems that still supports the old iPhotos.app  Deleting it will mean that iPhotos will no longer have any images.
