I have a MacBook Air running Big Sur with a 256GB hard drive that is formatted like this:

pic 2

pic 3

Because of this, I have extremely limited storage space to work with, even though I never set it up this way and don't care for redundant drive.

I have ample iCloud storage for backups. How can this be fixed, preferably by condensing to one volume?

    You seem have a 128g disk rather than 256g. Can you add at your question the results of this 2 terminal commands : diskutil list and diskutil ap list ?

  • No problem, but you have 2 useless data volumes. And the diskutil result can help for suppress them. You can edit your question and add informations.

Have you tried deleteing the redundant partitions? Click "Partition" icon on the top, then select the partition that you don't want and click the "-" on the bottom.
