And of course all the GBs of surplus normally unneeded language folders as well
indeed.

when you reformat and partition your SSD.. EFI / recovery is removed.. that is what I did..
when I reinstalled the OS from one of my keys - it only installed the OS.
then I have a bunch of 'service' USB 3.0 Keys of 10.10.x-10.9.x-10.8.x-10.7.x for various macs and services that I need..
Plus i have a startech USB 7 port 3.0 hub.. that hides everything under my desk..
