Archive and reinstall your system. Then leave it alone. Moving system files around when you don't know what they do is not a good idea.

Watch out for overfilling the drive. Try to have a minimum of 10% free hard drive space. You can burn excess photos off onto DVDs or CDs. A large external hard drive would be fine as well as providing space for a Time Machine backup. These can now be had for under $100.
