I have One Drive installed on my MacBook.
When right-click on the One Drive icon in my Finder and click “get info” it says under size:
172.298.589.945 bytes (39,5 GB on disk) for 57.162 items.
So the way I interpret this is that only 39,5 GB should take space on my Macbook disk. Which is in line with the documents I store offline on my mac (some pictures and music)
However, when I look at the actual disk space used (I click apple icon on home screen, click “about this mac” and then under Storage tab it shows me that my stored documents use 178,4GB. And with that my Mac storage is almost full.
I have no other documents on my Mac, I keep everything in One Drive or ICloud. Icloud is totally online, no files are offline. And One Drive I have only a few files offline.
So why does it seem to take all my storage nevertheless?
