Because I have a base model of macbook air m1, I have only 256ssd so storage is a little bit of a problem for me. I want to know how much overall storage my crossover games are taking but I can't find any userful information on Settings -> Storage. It shows only exe files I think with only some kb and crossover app that is taking ~1gb.
The Crossover application is in /Applications. It is not huge. There are a few extremely tiny preference and drm files in ~/Library/Preferences, they take up almost no space at all.
By default, your bottles are in ~/Library/Application Support/Crossover/Bottles and all your installed Windows applications and their support files are installed into your bottles. This is what is taking up real space. There are also some “launcher” files inside ~/Applications/Crossover which do take up some space but aren’t individually very large.
Crossover tricks your installed Windows applications into treating your ~/Documents folder as the My Documents folder. While some applications will store their save files in some other location and therefore will be inside one of your bottles, most applications put their save files in My Documents. Save files and other things applications put in ~/Documents can be anywhere from meaninglessly small to very large depending on the specific application and the use to which you put it.
I don’t have a problem with the capacity of my boot volume but I do prefer to have my bottles anywhere but in the ~/Library folder. I use the method described in that link to put my Bottles folder inside my ~/Applications folder.
Please Note: This Forum is for non-application specific questions relating to installation/configuration of CrossOver. All application-specific posts to this Forum will be moved to their appropriate Compatibility Center Forum.
CrossOver Forums: the place to discuss running Windows applications on Mac and Linux
We're rebels. We're misfits. But mostly, we're software liberators. And we're very, very good at what we do. We have to be. Lots of developers work with open source, but only a tiny fraction of those are good enough to get software that was designed for one platform to work on another one. We invented CrossOver software - a unique approach to cross-platform compatibility that does not require dual-boot or another OS license. We launched PortJump to help app and game developers broaden their market beyond Windows® users. And we launched ExecMode to help organizations solve really ugly technical challenges.
