MacOS Mojave 10.14.6 Processor: 2.8 GHt Intel Core i7 Memory 16 GB
I want to partition my Disk because I want to try to install Linux-Ubuntu. For this I'm following this tutorial.
Disk utility I clicked on the main volume > partition > partition but the following message appears:
This container has 915.81 GB used space. Its minimum size is 1 TB. This container cannot be split because the resulting containers would be too small.
And I cannot click on the
+ button to partition the disk
I then tried the following:
I then tried to make some space and deleted around 300+ GB of data and have now 439 GB (when I go to apple button (above left) > About this Mac > Storage). However, in
Disk utilitythe amount of free memory didn't change and is still only around 85GB and it is still not possible to partition the disk.
I deleted 2/3 automatic time machine backups with
tmutil listlocalsnapshots / tmutil deletelocalsnapshots ...
- deactivated the automatic time machine backups with
sudo tmutil disable localsnapshot
What should I do?
Here is the screenshot from diskutil where the problem is appearing:
