    So OSX sierra now shows you a more detailed storage infographic and I realized that I have a lot of storage being taken up by system files... here is a photo:

    so is it weird to have 47 gb of system files or am I just underestimating the size of the OS. Also if it isn't normal could you guys tell me how to clear some of the unnecessary files?
