    I started downloading the 50gb of additional content with about 60gb remaining on my disk. I came to my computer a few hours later to see a notification letting me know I had been disconnected from the internet. I tried to resume the download by navigating to Download Additional Content, and it showed that nothing had been downloaded or installed at all. I selected everything, hit install, and was told I didn't have enough space. Where are those incomplete downloads? Why weren't they deleted? Why won't Logic just resume where I left off? I now have 20gb of incomplete downloads somewhere in the computer and Logic refuses to just resume the downloads, instead it wants to start completely fresh. I deleted Logic, removed the folder from application support, restarted my computer, and the 20gb of space was still occupied. Where are the files and how can I remove them completely?

    Perhaps someone can come to your aid as to the location of possible temporary files downloaded by Logic but I'd say you need to re-think leaving only 10GB of free space on your disk.

    You can try dragging the Logic Pro X app from your Applications folder into AppCleaner. This will delete all related files and might get rid of the incomplete downloads too: https://freemacsoft.net/appcleaner/

    Is it possible that my computer just showed incorrect storage at the time of the download and that's why the download stopped? I was using an illegal copy of Logic, so that might also be why. Still though, I would like to fix this and free up my space.
