Reminder to Self : Don't Do Apple Betas


The MacOS Beta went nice and smooth, and all the new features were going "Weee, boing, \o/yeay\o/"

Until they weren't, and now the Mac is going "OMG! YEW GOT NO SPAAICE!!!" every few minutes.
Gosh, I wonder why, MacOS..
I wonder why my 512Gb drive is pretty much completely full, even after removing Xcode and offloading all my photos.
I wonder why my drive is screaming like there's no tomorrow.

I wonder why, Apple...


Fucking betas, man.. Don't do it..

Finally found it..
I've been scouring the drive for well over a week, using all manner of "Scan my Drive", "Clean my Mac" and manual folder searching..
I found the bastard.

/Users/Your Account/Library/Metadata/CoreSpotlight/Priority

Spotlight.
It was Spotlight.
Over 250Gb of data in a single folder.
Deleted what files looked deletable and rebooted. Will let you know if it happens again.

Bloody hell, that sucked up a lot a space!!!!

Glad you found out what was causing it. I shall add this into my notebook as a "WTF! Apple fix"

Until the next time...
