My MacBook Pro(Retina, 13-inch, Late 2013) occupies most of my space. I'd done some research and tried some recommended ways but the problem remains.

I tried the "tmutil listlocalsnapshots/" command on the terminal but it turned out that I had no snapshots.

I also typed in the command "sudo mdutil -E /" to reindex my system. It did actually work, yet it released only about 5GB space.

Additionally, I find it quite strange that the total amount of used gigabytes added from the OmniDiskSweeper is about 75GB, which contradicts with the actual amount, 119GB, added from mac's system.

I wonder what the problem is @@, did someone encounter the same issue?

Current storage from Mac's system

Current storage from OmniDiskSweeper

  • Check Disk Utility; it should show a 'purgeable' value that is likely to be the difference. – Tetsujin Dec 23 '18 at 7:59
  • I tried but the system(系統) still takes away about 97GB space. – GeefrytheBo Dec 23 '18 at 14:34
  • The top image you show isn't accurate. There have been many complaints about this. I'd believe omnidisksweeper. – historystamp Dec 23 '18 at 20:42
  • But the problem is there is a window kept jumping out reminding me that I have no space left, and I can't download anything now...... – GeefrytheBo Dec 24 '18 at 4:17
