    Maybe you can disable TimeMachine's local snapshots?

    You can just ignore that Backups space used. As the disk approaches 80% full, the OS will automatically begin shrinking that space. You can read about it here.

    If you want, you an just briefly turn Time Machine off then back on and it will zero that Backups space out.

    Other than backup you can also clean some stuff from Other folders by clearing off caches, logs, duplicates from libraries. Hope you have emptied your trash, removed unwanted apps, cleared garbage from Download folders. These are some quick non-paid Mac cleaning tips. Let me know how much spaces you saved after little cleaning.
