    Hi everyone! In the new Mac OS we can see and easily control our storage, and that great! But the only thing hats not is that my System storage is using up to 63 Gb, which is a lot of space, considering the fact, that its a little over the half of my computer memory. Is there a way that i can access and see which system files i don't really need and just delete them?



    Thank you!

    Hey MacMan! You can always run a quick scan through OmniDiskSweeper, to see a nice hierarchy of what's using what: https://www.omnigroup.com/download/latest/OmniDiskSweeper

    Feel free to post a screenshot here if there's anything you're unsure about.

    Other than the usual things like emptying the Trash, I've found local Time Machine backups and iOS backups take up a lot of space.

    Speak soon!

    wow, my system only takes up 10 GB. I'm sure you can trim down that 63 GB quite a bit
