Hello, so yesterday I cleared out about 90GBs worth of files from my computer in order to make room for some other things. However, instead of the removed files creating room for new things, in the 'storage' area, there is now about 87GB of 'purgeable' space. There was no such space before I did the cleanup.
I can safely say there are no more files to be deleted, as I should have 130 GB of empty storage.
I've tried following the storage guide on clearing purgeable space, but there simply are no files in the lists. I've tried restarting my computer many times, and waited overnight to see if the problem gets solved. I've tried putting my harddrive in and out of Spotlight.
I'm not sure what else to do here. Help, please? It's incredibly frustrating to have cleared out so much spaceonly to have 87GB of it labelled unusable with no clear solution. 🙁
