Happy new year!
I have an issue with my MacMini (2012) server which is running latest Catalina on a 1.12TB fusion drive set as APFS.
I only upgraded from Mojave in the last couple of weeks and so I am unsure whether that has been the trigger…
My disk free space is getting smaller and smaller and is now just 136GB; I estimate I only have 200GB of actual files on the drive. When inspecting Storage under About this Mac the ‘Other’ category is using 753GB.
I need to recover this space.
I think it could be something to do with either
a) time machine (I’ve turned it off but this hasn’t helped) or
b) photo library. This was previously all originals but I changed to optimised and is now taking up 50GB (full originals is about 550GB). Could the OS not have recovered this space once I switched to optimised?
Any help much appreciated. Thank you.
