FileVault sparsefile uses double of actual allocated disk space
I simply saw that for one reason or another disk use (du) reports that FileVault in my residence directory site would certainly utilize its alloted disk space two times:
[/Users]% sudo du -h -d 1 . 184G ./.moo 170G ./moo 204K ./Shared 354G . [/Users]% df -h Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on /dev/disk0s2 233G 225G 7.7G 97% / devfs 119K 119K 0 100% /dev /dev/disk1s2 466G 458G 7.6G 99% /Users/moo
The encrypted residence folder is detailed two times as/. moo and also/ moo
Is this without a doubt the instance or is something damaged on my FileVault arrangement?
Exists any kind of actions to more detect the trouble and also lower FileVault disk space intake to actual degree? I have closure my Mac sometimes, so the blog post - login sparsebundle resize need to have started.
As I recognize it, when you login, the encrypted disk photo obtains instantly placed (and also a link developed to it). Hence, making your residence folder
/Users/moo indicate the sparsebundle documents within
/Users/.moo. If you right click (or CTRL+click) on your residence folder in the Finder and also select Get Info, you need to see thats its a Volume of a disk photo with something like
/Users/.moo/moo.sparsebundle. I beleive
du reports its twice as its merely going across the very same reliable folder framework once more.
