Did you use the simulator menu to reset?
Have you used Xcode to delete derived data/option-clean build folder?
hello KMT, many thanks for your reply,
not exactly sure what you mean by "sim menu to reset" do you mean "hardware - restart", or "hardware - reset all content and settings"
I have looked at derived data, it is the archive file for my project. It's 300MB, so that's not the problem!
My "system" storage is over 60GB so I am thinking that it's old XCode simulators.
There are fixes for this on StackOverflow but they use Terminal, surely there's another way?
Any ideas appreciated
Sorry, when you said 'old files' I thought you meant old project files/apps.
You mean 'detele old simulators'*...
Which version Xcode are you using? How many versions of Xcode do you have installed?
Seen the discussion here?
*Note that the current main simulator app itself is inside the application Xcode.
KMT, many thanks for your help.
I have found many many files in: ~/Library/Developer/CoreSimulator/Devices/
There are probably over 100 folders in there, and they are using over 17G of memory. Zikes.
I have deleted simulators from within XCode, but these files still remain.
I think this is where my problem is, does anyone know if there are any problems deleting them?
Are they old simulators from previous versions of XCode?
