Not enough disk space issue in Steam on Mac M1
Hello

I'm just trying Crossover for running games through Steam on a Mac M1.

Installing was straight forward but I needed to remove a couple of games from my native Steam to make space. However, after doing this I don't see any difference in the amount of space available under Crossover (it's as though this disk space is still being used).

I've tried:
- Reinstalling steam.
- Reinstalling crossover.
- Deleting more than necessary.

Nothing has worked. I'm aware that I need to empty trash and my Storage overview under "About this Mac" reports more than enough free space.

Thanks

Dan
Hi there,

We hear reports similar to this every once in a while, and these mismatches between what Steam is reporting and what your Mac is reporting tend to be temporary. I'd recommend checking to see if you have a Steam client update available and rebooting your Mac. If the issue persists, please submit a ticket.

Thanks,
Meredith

The problem is how macOS deals with free space, it allocates space as purgeable but wine is unable to detect this causing issues with detected free space.

This is commonly associated with the local time machine images that are saved on the macOS drive unless disabled.
