Tips to clean up the disk storage

Find the duplicates

  • use CC cleaner, go to tools and find duplicated files

    Clean up existing data structure

    find . -type d -empty -delete
    find . -iname thumbs.db -delete
    find . -iname .ds_store -delete
    find . -iname ._* -delete
    find . -iname desktop.ini -delete

    To prevent mac from creating .ds_store files

    defaults write DSDontWriteUSBStores -bool true
    defaults write DSDontWriteNetworkStores -bool true

    This will create a file under ~/Library/Preferences/ Once you have this, the files won’t be created on network and usb stores
