One of the defining features of the Mac series is its memory. Apple has made the transition to SSDs, which ensures better storage and faster data transfers. When you check the storage status of your Mac, you will notice that alongside the conventional storage sections, you will see a section known as ‘Other’, and it usually makes up a big chunk of your Mac’s storage space.
One thing you will notice is that when you try to interact with the ‘Other’ section within the store window, your clicks will not register, and as such, you may feel that the storage that has been occupied by this section is recoverable. What’s even worse is that sometimes, this ‘other’ section actually occupies a large chunk of storage on your device and you may feel that releasing some space from there can help you save a lot more of your critical content right on your Mac or MacBook.
Fortunately, it is actually possible to access the ‘Other’ memory and also edit and remove files on there, and in this tutorial, we will show you how to do it. Without further ado, let’s get started.
