Apple menu > About this Mac > Storage
If your disk is almost full, you can remove some files (clear up storage) to make more space that is available.
Check your Library folder
According to statistics, it could be related to folders on the library in your Home Folder. These folders save all files related to certain applications. Important to know that Library folder is a hidden one (do not try to rename it). To get access to OS X or later, follow this path in new File Manager:
Finder > Go > Go to Folder > type ~/Library/
- Choose View (1).
- Click on the folder ‘Library.’
- Choose Get Info (2).
There you can see which folder has as much data as Other files. Be aware, some actions inside this folder may lead to certain apps being disturbed. How to check this folder:
1. Folder Library > Application Support > Mobile Sync > Backup.
The backup folder has the backup files of your current iOS device. When you click ‘Get info’, you can check the size of its folder. You also can delete or remove some files, if you do not need to use a backup file for your device.
2. Folder Mail
This folder contains all attachments and preferences for your mail. You can check its size, by clicking ‘Get info’. If you do not have some attachments, you may delete them easily.
