Thanks. I just found that one can execute the command "sudo tmutil disablelocal" to wipe out this file
(I'm reinitializing this Mac and so don't need 150GB of backup data ;-)) Executing "sudo tmutil enablelocal"
restarts the local snapshost but from a size of zero.

I was aware of that and have done this myself, however every time I post that solution, a certain member of this forum always says it is not necessary because they delete themselves over time.
