Question: Apple must give power users more control over this feature.
Apple must give power users more control over the local snapshot feature.
The OS is writing hundreds of GB of invisible data to the storage device without giving power users the choice of managing how or if this process works. For people editing large videos, this can make the difference between completing the project on time or not, as After Effects and similar programs need empty disc space for caching. This has nothing to do with the life of the drive (which happens to be a SSD in my case) or general performance.
Please relay this problem to Apple engineers.
