I am using a Macbook Air 2020 with a 250 GB SSD running Catalina and I keep running out of hard drive space, despite having about 60 GB available on iCloud.
There's about a 35 GB difference, which I attribute to apps and system files which only stay on the laptop. Already running "Optimize my Mac" and old files and photo clearly go through a retrieval process when I try to open them.
Is there another setting that would keep 20-40 GB of headroom on the SSD drive vs. getting close to topping out?
I use Clean My Mac X to eliminate 3-6 GB of junk at a time. Can see the discrepancies below in my iCloud and Finder Storage totals. Thanks.
