Removes the MacOS local backup to save up some storage space.

Why this?

MacOS users usually run out of space. The many stringent methods like never storing the Entertainments folder out in external harddisks is temporary. This script provides the last resort to give you the final blocks of storage you can gulp down.

How to use?

Download the zip file, extract the folder, chmod into the folder.
Run the following command which will ask your password as removing backups requires the root user access.

sudo ./time-machine-backup-remover.command

If you find this helpful share with other MacOS users in need of this piece if code.

Have a great day :)

You can’t perform that action at this time.
