Whats taking up my drive space.
Thanks for the tip datafornothinandbitsforfree , however that only showed an extra 2 GB.
I think it may be time to wipe the drive and start from scratch.
My internal SSD boot drive was also filling up. It turns out that Carbon Copy Cloner creates snapshots and if the regular destination clone disk isn’t available it writes these snapshots to the boot drive, in my case almost filling it up. CCC turns this setting on when it encounters an APFS disk to clone. I turned snapshots off in Carbon Copy Cloner preferences and was able to delete 175 GB of snapshots from the boot SSD. Time Machine may make snapshots on the boot drive as well if the target Time Machine storage disk isn’t available. Is there a way to control Time Machine snapshots?
You can use DaisyDisk or CleanMyMac X to find out. Both of apps are my favorite 🙂
