Question: "System space" not correct / .mobilebackups issue?
Running High Sierra on Macbook Pro 15" Mid 2015.
Just after this update I noticed this issue, but not sure was present even before.
"About this system"/"Storage" reports that my space is mainly occupied by "System" files, 123GB on 250GB SSD.
This does not match the reports under the "Manage..." section:
I already read different topics around this theme,
and I ended up focusing on the folder .mobilebackups,
that seems to lock 71GB of my space.
Running the script
sudo du -x -h -d 1 /
and found that .mobilebackups is taking 71GB
So, following some suggestions fond in other posts:
- I tryed to disable Time Machine backups, then re-enable it.
Used the TM window and also the script: sudo tmutil disablelocal && sudo tmutil enablelocal
- Tried multiple restarts in and not in safety mode.
- I followed also the instructions proposed by Linc Davis here:
but without success due to an errror:
Kindly ask this community help...
Thank you in advance for your support!
