Long story short.
My MacBookPro has become bloated with files that I either can't trace back to originals or have no real memory of three years later. It’s got a 2tb SSD and i am constantly running out of space - yet fearful or deleting system files
(btw feel free to edit if I am not asking this in the most effective way.)
I am getting constant errors in console such as
<private> worker reports error after processing object <private>, error: Error Domain=com.apple.photos.error Code=47001
My question, is there a way to safely back up either via Time Machine or via individual files the things I would like to save i.e. photos documents, movies, Snippets of code, BBedit files etc. And then reinstall them without potential he re-infecting my machine with malware which I believe there to be present although I have not been able to track it down.
