I’m not sure if this is a Big Sur issue or whether I’ve just noticed it, but on looking at my hard drive usage it says I have used 465.03 GB:
On that disk there is:
- Applications (41.18 GB)
- Library (2.89 GB)
- System (24.89 GB)
- Users (225.59 GB)
= 294.55 GB
…which leaves 170.48 GB unaccounted for.
I’ve looked at hidden files on the root level too, but they’re just 5 GB or so, so that still leaves 165 GB of disk space that seems to have vanished into thin air
What’s the situation on your drive?
(You can select a folder/drive and press ‘
CMD + I’ to show info (you can also select a number of folders and do the same.)
