Disk Utility version 22.6 in Ventura 13.4 finally tackles bugs running First Aid on APFS volumes. Has it finally solved them?
The update to macOS Ventura 13.4 is relatively small, and brings several improvements and fixes, including the following […]
How can you have two volumes in the same APFS container with identical names? How does macOS handle the conflicts?
After studying thousand of log entries in less than 2 seconds, this is how macOS updates its values for purgeable and available space. But who uses them?
Deleting two large files from a volume triggered the updating of figures for purgeable and available space within 9 seconds. Yet 6 minutes later, the Finder didn’t show those updated figures.
One volume has 60 GB of purgeable space, giving 295 GB available; the other has only 15 GB purgeable, so 250 GB available. How can they be in the same container?
Good space management doesn’t bring new emoji, but it makes a big difference when the Finder doesn’t give completely inaccurate figures for Available space. A practical demonstration of its gross errors.
Can we trust the figures the Finder provides for used and available space on a volume? What does it count as purgeable?
When the Finder works out how much space is available on disk, what does it count as being “purgeable”? The answer may surprise you.
The Finder reported free space had risen by over 80 GB, that’s more than 50%. It looked like something had wiped some of my media libraries.
