    Is long is you keep around 5-10% free space on the drive you should be fine. So keep 100-200GB of space free if you want to avoid slow downs.

    How much does it normally use? It will use the exact same space on a Fusion Drive as anywhere else.

    From what I can see you are using 76.2GB of storage, which means you have 2,000GB + 128GB - 76.2GB = 2,051.8GB left on your iMac. But I am not sure that I understand what you are asking?
