Default Re: Low disc space on boot drive mystery - solved

I turned off snapshots and deleted all the existing ones on the boot drive.

Free space jumped from 35GB to 243GB...!

and Pro Tools seems a little snappier now, although that may be my imagination. Certainly the three or four tests of bounce to disk didn't produce any beachballs or slow response going through the dialogs just now.

Another place where I often see a beachball is when hitting enter to set a marker. Testing just now, I can't reproduce that either. So I'm feeling considerably happier, thanks!

Now I'll let one more verified backup go through and then I might upgrade to 2019.10 just for the fun of it...
