Have a look at About This Mac → Storage tab. You might see a purple segment labeled "Backups." That's the local Time Machine cache, and it doesn't show up in the Finder's free space display because it can theoretically be purged if that space is needed. I had to clean this up myself because it was getting out of hand for me. I ended up just disabling the local snapshots altogether using this Terminal command: sudo tmutil disablelocal. This will disable the local snapshots and delete it all from your system. If you at some point in the future want it back, you can re-enable it using this command: sudo tmutil enablelocal
Thanks for your response.
That's the picture :
Others : 28,91GB
Aplications : 13,99GB
Pictures : 4,27GB
Movies : 1,15GB
Music : 1,11GB
Backups : 184Mb
Will search for this Pictures, movies and audio becouse i don't know where are them. But it's a start !
15GB free isn't nearly enough.
The OS needs swap space from 8GB ~ 12GB, then you need space to unpack and hold that .dmg while reading to install.
Shoot for 25GB free, at least, but only in a pinch...double that for routine safety.. And if you can't keep that going, it's time to get a larger/additional HD/SSD.
As welll, max the physical ram.
But isn't the swap space used counted in the Finder's free space measurement?
Swap is dynamic and not the only thing dipping into free space (contiguous free space is king but that's another issue). Photo caches, TM snapshots, non-emptied trash...they all play a role and Finder is just a general tool when it comes to sizes. Trying to juggle low disc space is an exercise in frustration and why the OP is in the situation they're asking for help with. 15GB is no one's friend. The solution is simple and always the same. Make more and keep it there.
