    A folder in my Library/containers is taking up nearly 9GB of storage. Is this normal? I don't even know what it is tbh hoping somebody here could clear this up

    Do you maybe have a lot of ebooks or ibooks?
    They all get saved to that location and can take up a lot of space.

    No. That's where iBooks stores your electronic books. Perhaps you could delete the other copy.
