I saw this post: What is com.apple.bird? Why does it grow so big? where they inform that the files in the directory com.apple.bird (session) is related to iCloud backup. I have some huge files (140Gb total) and I wanna check what is inside before I decide to delete them or to save them. Is there any software or script that can open those files and show me all the contents?

Thank you for the attention.

Follow these steps:

  1. Go to Finder
  2. Press and hold the option key while you click on the Go menu
  3. Select Library
  4. You can let go of the option key now
  5. Within the Library folder open the Caches folder
  6. Now you'll see a com.apple.bird folder

You can browse within this folder to determine what's taking up space.
