Your system storage space is more than usual.

Cache files can take up a lot of space.

How to remove them:

From Mac Paw

Open a Finder window and select Go in the menu bar.

Click on “Go to Folder…”

Type in ~/Library/Caches. Delete the files/ folders that are taking up the most space.

Now click on “Go to Folder…”

Type in /Library/Caches (simply lose the ~ symbol) And, again, delete the folders that take up the most space.

Another thing that could help is starting in safe mode.

From this Apple Discussion:

Try this...

Start your mac in Safe mode by holding the shift key before the power key

Check your storage About This Mac/Storage etc. (In safe mode, mine showed accurate usage)

Restart in normal mode

Repeat step #2.

  • All files or directories under this(~/Library/Cache) I can delete, right? – aircraft Jan 8 at 8:23
  • @aircraft yes you can – TNo Jan 8 at 10:42

I would look at moving some data or files onto separate storage.

There are also apps that will remove unused languages, duplicate files etc from the system if you want to look at those.

For duplicate files, looking in Apps, is "Duplicate Files Sweeper", (not used, just an example)

"Disk Cleaner" is an app that cleans all sorts, but it is not free... and not used by me either, so an example...
