Hello all,

Per the title and attached screenshot, my system storage is over 50% and this has happened before with iOS, but I'll usually just wipe my iPhone clean and start new. Is there an easier way to do that with Mac?

All help is much appreciated.

It's small in size and free.

Open DiskWave and go to the preferences.
Put a checkmark in "show invisible files".
Close preferences.

The DiskWave window shows you in plain English all your drives.
Click on any drive.
Now, you'll see what's ON the drive, listed in order of "largest to smallest".
You can easily locate what's eating up your space.

What is it?

This program is incredible! Had a bunch of games and movies stored away I'd completely forgotten about.

Thank you, Fishrrman!
