    "erase" and "leave some things" don't go together.

    Just tell us what you are actually trying to do, and why.
  2. Select each folder you want to delete and push delete? I'm a bit lost here.
  3. ...along with the suggestions from others, you can also un-install any program and utility that you and the computer can "live without".
  4. sudo rm -r / will do the erase part for you.
