High Sierra: Applications & System
And Xcode. Cosy on an MBA SSD.
LONDON (Rixstep) — SSD storage is still premium. There is elegance in simplicity.
Note that the first screenshot below - /Applications - includes the Xcode hive, which is monstrous. Perhaps 60% of all that's there.
The du output file is 20 MB. That's how big it is. You'll also be reminded that APFS doesn't sort on disk. For sorted filesystem data, add '| sort'.
The /System hive is smaller, perhaps not surprisingly.
But either way, it's a lot of files - and a lot of disk space - for a system that uses SSD.
