I'm a (semi-new) Mac developer. I've been working on a component to my app that - in order to function properly - needs to download a fairly large file from the internet. I thought this file would be stored in memory (and would be automatically removed once the app no longer needed it via ARC), but it's actually stored in the /var folder. I've been running and debugging this component for numerous days, which means roughly 20GB of unnecessary files have built up. Of course, I quickly changed my code to remove this file once it's no longer needed, but now I have a big, single 20GB file on my system that I must get rid of. I have a 64GB MBA, so I need all the space I can get. This is the path: /private/var/folders/9r/s6cf1dsj0_30tbz14vmhxj1r0000gn/T
Any ideas as to how I can hunt these files down and remove them? I know the system keeps some important files in the /var folder, so I'm really hesitant to just drag it to the trash. I also have a whole bunch of custom stuff on my system, so I really don't want to do a clean install if I don't have to. Any ideas? I appreciate your time.
